A big shout out to The Dusty Knuckle Bakery, which makes beautiful bread, healthy, doorstop sandwiches and indulgent baked treats.
The Dusty Knuckle Bakery also provides real-life employment experiences to young people affected by criminality, violence and other employment barriers. They are taught a craft, to improve their self-regard and future prospects.
The Dusty Knuckle is a multi award-winning social enterprise comprised of a grafting and absurdly resourceful team of individuals who have used their passion and sheer determination to build a central London bakery from scratch. Their goal is to draw 50% of their future workforce from the young people who have come through their programmes.
Good bread is now available in London but still not commonplace. The Dusty Knuckle Bakery capitalises on the consumer trend towards locally made, artisan foods that can be traced to familiar human hands and faces – people more and more want to feel tangible human interactions in the unseen processes behind what they’re eating. The Dusty Knuckle Bakery fulfils these consumer wants with a beautiful, handmade product and brand ethos that champions inner-city life, cooperation, and unrelentingly high food standards.
