A BAKING school is hoping to team up with a Warrington brewer as part of its plans to cook up a storm for the World Bread Awards.

Room Forty wants to take an ale loaf to the awards as part of a mission create a bread that is uniquely ‘Warrington’.

Founder Jen Perry launches her plea to breweries during Real Bread Week which runs from Saturday to March 1.

It is the UK’s annual celebration which supports independent bakeries and encourages people to bake.

Room Forty won silver in the 2017 World Bread Awards with its ‘White Delight’ loaf and is going for gold this year.

Jen, a former Lymm High student, said: “Many towns and cities have a bake or dish associated with them. The Eccles cake, Bath bun, Dundee cake, Shrewsbury biscuit and so on, but not Warrington.

“I want to create something unique to the town.

“There is a natural harmony in celebrating our centuries old brewing heritage and in us using it as a key ingredient in a loaf of bread.

“I want to take the Warrington ale loaf to the World Bread Awards later this year and hopefully win.

“All I need is for a brewer to contact me to provide some Warrington ale. It doesn’t have to be a large brewery, an enthusiastic home brewer will be equally as welcome.

“Together let’s put Warrington on the world stage.

“We teach our award-winning White Delight on our beginners’ bread baking classes.

“We’d love to be teaching Warrington ale bread at future classes.”
