We've known for a while that the folk behind Jolene (and Primeur and Westerns Laundry) were planning to open a bakery - and now we've had confirmation.
Big Jolene Bakery - to be known as Big Jo - was confirmed in an Instagram post yesterday and if you're in the Holloway/Hornsey area, this is going to be your go-to place for bread.
The space on Hornsey Road was an old refrigeration and air conditioning shop that they're currently transforming into a bakery. "It will open in 3 months time."
Talking to Hot Dinners this morning they told us it's "basically a bigger production bakery than the current Jolene, complete with indoors grain silos, a couple of flour mills, pizza bread, pastry ovens and, of course the star of the show: ancient mixed wheat populations grown in healthy soils promoting land generation using plants, animals and trees in one balanced performant and sustainable eco system."
There'll be a shop, a 60 cover restaurant open all day "serving all manner of baked goods". As to what might be on the menu, well the fact that they're installing bread and pizza ovens "should give you a few hints".
