The inspirational bakery helping refugees earn a crust.
At St Catherine’s Church in Stoke Aldermoor, a training scheme for bakers is helping Syrian refugees use their skills to find work.
In St Catherine’s Church kitchen in Stoke Aldermoor, balls of gleaming dough are rolled flat and topped with onion relish, za’atar and tomato purée by a trio of keen bakers.
They are expertly transforming dough into small fresh pizzas, soon to be sold in cafés across Coventry.
In a corner of the little kitchen, while the business of pizza baking goes on, the slower process of sourdough proofing continues.
Sourdough use a natural baker’s yeast and longer proofing time to make a healthy bread much more intense in flavour than a white loaf.
