Plenty Provisions Store in St.Leonards-on-Sea is one of my favourite local shops. The lady who owns and runs it re-located from London to the coast a couple of years ago and set up her dream store providing wonderful organic dried and fresh foods, eco-cleaning products, fair trade chocolate and coffee etc. It's a delight to peruse the shelves for something delicious.
She has also followed her dream of having a coffee and cake or deli sandwich mini-cafe at the back of the store and some sweet tables and chairs to sit out on the promenade for you to relax in and bask in the seasonal sunshine.
Not only do i love all her provisions (which also include selling some beautiful cards and handmade vintage fabric lavender bags) but the BREAD she sells from her suppliers The Lighthouse Bakery in East Sussex is manna from heaven. Melt in your mouth kind-of-stuff.
The Lighthouse bakery bakes all sorts of gorgeous artisan handmade breads, they also have an award wining bakery school with various courses. The courses are a little on the pricey side but a girl can dream can't she! (I promise I've been good this year Santa ;0)
I bought a loaf of our favourite treat bread this week...
Plaited chocolate bread, Say no more!
The great thing about this bread is that you can freeze it and have it available for those chilly dark evenings when you fancy a sweet treat.
If you are anything like my family it will be warmed up in the microwave and gobbled with melting butter in one go!
A girl can dream about frozen chocolate bread can't she xox
