Kate’s Kitchen Bakery & Deli

Occupying part of what used to be the mill’s shop, ‘Kate’s Kitchen’ can be found just inside the entry to the watermill. ‘Kate’ is Jane Bard, a volunteer and former Trustee of the Town Mill whose combined passion for the mill and cookery and her experience in retail management led her to set up her own business in Lyme.

Kate’s Kitchen is a tribute to all things homemade, local and delicious. A bakery and deli, it is here you will find a splendid range of food items to take away; from Moore’s Dorset Knobs and Clipper Teas to artisanal breads baked by Jane herself with Town Mill flour and honey from her own bees. If you are stuck for meal ideas, here’s the place to come and try something new. Jane is always happy to help you track down that elusive item and will stock it for you if she can… whether it’s her own special muesli blend or a particular brand of crispbread.

Jane also runs cookery courses and family-friendly baking and decorating activities:

‘Pearls of Dorset’ course

Make an ammonite-shaped loaf and a classic Dorset Apple Cake

‘Bread & Baking Masterclass’

For both beginners and more experienced bakers

For more information or to book, please contact Jane on 01460 221698

The next baking course will be Saturday 18th August.
