Khleb Bakery is a micro bakery based in Pencaitland offering delicious stone baked sourdough bread, slowly fermented and patiently crafted. Aliona, originally from Russia ("Khleb" means bread in Russian) is passionate about using local produce and uses Mungoswells flour. Having opened in November 2015 her business has grown considerably and we are delighted to be selling her bread.
The Flour produced at Mungoswells is made entirely from wheat grown on their farm in East Lothian. Having their own mill means that they are able to produce flour quite unlike commercially produced varieties. Mungoswells' white flour has small darker flecks in it, which are particles of bran, the outer protective skin of the grain. These tiny flecks enrich the flour with extra protein, fibre and nutrients. We use their flour in all our cooking and baking. We also sell their flour in our café.
