The Natural Foods bakery is a small bakery in Blackrock, a beautiful walk away from Cork City centre, along the marina walkway. Run by two sisters and a scottish fella, we believe passionately in good bread baked in the time-honoured traditional fashion.
For too long, Irish people have suffered the adverse effects of eating white sliced pan. Produced in factories, this product is squidgy, tasteless and full of additives to keep it feeling "fresh" for longer. One large producer even bears the ludicrous slogan of "today's bread today". Well, in our bakery today's bread really is today's. Our dedicated artisan bakers start work at 3.30 to handcraft each loaf, so that by the time our shop opens at 8.00, the whole building is infused with the warm and comforting aroma of fresh baked bread. Our products do not arrive frozen, to be heated up in an oven and create the illusion of a bakery, we actually make our bread from scratch each morning.
We use only organic flour in all our baking, with no added flour improvers, genetically modified soya flour, sugar or dairy products, we have a range of loaves; granary bread, 100% wholemeal loaves, spelt bread, white bread, the mediterranean inpired tomato & olive loaf, a tasty herb & seed bread (great for those omega fats!) and our lovely cherry brack, flavoured with cinnamon.
