The Orange Bakery

Kitty Tait (16) and her Dad Al (50) live in Watlington, Oxfordshire and between them run the Orange Bakery. From the most original flavoured sourdough (miso and sesame, fig and walnut) to huge piles of cinnamon buns and Marmite and cheese swirls the shop sells out every day and the queues stretch down the street.

Two years ago Kitty was at school and Al worked at Oxford University but when Kitty became so ill she couldn't leave the house, the two discovered baking and in particular sourdough. Chronicled in Kitty’s Instagram @therealorangebakery they went from a small subscription service to pop up’s to a shop all in 2 years. Along the way Kitty got better, a Corgi got involved and Al realised that he was now a baker not a teacher. Their book ‘Breadsong’ is published by Bloomsbury in Spring 2022.
