Little Pomona in Tasty Collaboration
Little Pomona's cider has been used by Nizi Bakery in the Hereford Bun, its recreation of the national classic, the Chelsea Bun. The artisan baker, David Nizi, based a stone's throw from Hereford Town Hall, wanted to craft something with truly local provenance. David used Little Pomona's Root & Branch cider to soak the dried fruit in, and to glaze the bun with, along with spelt flour from Toads Mill, in Bromyard, also sourdough pizza makers of note.
We were interviewed by Nicola Goodwin for Malcolm Boyden's morning programme on BBC Hereford & Worcester on 2 June. If you scroll in to about 10.10am and 11.35am you'll hear David and I talking about the ideas behind this new Herefordshire treat.
The Chelsea Bun was first baked in the Bun House in Chelsea in the 18th century. Filled with spice and citrus peel, they were all the rage among Hanoverian royalty.
The cider being used is Root & Branch, the one crafted with a mix of fruit from our home orchard and Dragon Orchard, and that's on sale at our shop in refillable growlers - hopefully sometime soon we'll be able to sell the Hereford Bun too!
