WE LOVE THE ORIGINAL BAKER
One of our favourite ‘Heartisans’, The Original Baker, makes tasty artisan products in the bustling North Yorkshire market town of Malton, otherwise known as ‘Yorkshire’s food capital’.
The Original Baker was founded in 2018 by Gill Ridgard and Cheryl in Barrett to supply hand crafted sausage rolls, pies and pasties using traditional artisan techniques and ‘proper’ ingredients to independent food halls, delis and farm shops. If Gill’s name is familiar to you, she also founded The Yorkshire Baker in 2007 and forged a partnership with Cranswick plc in 2012 to upscale her artisan techniques for a wider audience in the major retailers.
All of the products in The Original Baker range are irresistible, but we particularly love the Hog Roast sausage roll. Encased in all butter puff pastry dusted with tasty pork crackling shards, it’s packed full of succulent pulled pork with pork sausage meat, tangy Bramley apples, fresh herbs and spices – delicious!
