My Story

Spread the loaf was set up in May 2020 due to the Corona virus lock down. For 30yrs I've been a choreographer, director of opera and aerial theatre. From Covent Garden to the Sydney Opera House from Chicago to Millan but since March 16th, I have been unable to work in my beloved creative industry. I have turned instead to one of my favourite pastimes, baking. A dear friend of mine gave me her recipe for Challah and after one bite I was hooked. Challah bread is a jewish ceremonial bread, traditionally eaten on the Shabbat. What does Challah bread taste like? The taste is very similar to a brioche bread. The texture is rich and spongy from the egg yolks, with a little tang from the honey. The best way to put it – it's a little soft, a little sweet, and a whole lot of delicious! As I'm running this on a very small scale from home, I decided that my focus would be to encourage clients to send these delicious loaves as gifts.

Bread brings comfort to those that eat it and to those that make it.


In these troubling times maybe the simplest of gestures could mean the most.


I started delivering a few free loaves to friends and their reactions made me think that it was a possible business idea. So check out my range of Challahs and other delicious breads
