Rob Swift


The Swift family began baking bread in 1863, when Hannah Swift created loaves for the people of Staffordshire. Now more than 150 years and six generations on, Rob along with his brother John who recently starred in the BBC programme ‘Victorian Bakers,’ continue that tradition in Shropshire, producing some of the most delicious and inventive breads you will find.

Rob loves teaching people to learn to make bread. In his book ‘Born and Bread’ written to mark the family’s 150th anniversary, he also includes his easy-to-follow recipes for standard, savoury and sweet breads, and following a recent meeting with Royalty, HRH Duchess of Cornwall now has a copy!
