MODERN BAKER is a successful organic bakery and café in Oxford. It opened its doors in May 2014 and has taken Summertown by storm. Melissa Sharp, whose brainchild it is, is writing a book for Ebury Press to be published in May 2017. There’s a huge market of people who love bread and cakes but feel guilty about eating them. Melissa and her team bake with natural sourdough which encourages the good gut bacteria. With the success of Giulia Enders Gut book and the national obsession with baking, the time is incredibly right for this book.
