Family recipes never surpassed
Your favourite picks at Thomas the Baker aren't your favourite for no reason at all – every recipe is created by hand and tried and tested in house to produce something that we're proud to call our own.
The butter pastry used for our Danish Pastries and Croissants is delicately layered to produce between 30 and 100 layers for a delicious flaky texture and melt in the mouth quality. Topped off with a variety of tasty toppings including luscious lemon curd and fondant icing, these remain a firm favourite with all our customers.
Our Chelsea Buns remain a longstanding Yorkshire favourite: brushed with butter and lightly dusted with cinnamon before being carefully hand rolled and finished off with fondant icing, the Yorkshire tradition is to cut them in half and butter them – you had better not be thinking about dieting!
75% of ingredients are locally sourced
At Thomas', you can be sure that your weekly (or daily!) pastries are of the highest standard, developed by our own craft bakers with ingredients chosen for their locality and quality.
Our fresh free range shell eggs are bought from a local farmer near Scarborough, and are used in many of our products including the award winning Bakewell and curd Tarts. The fresh cream for the Quiche, and the curd for our tarts comes from a local producer in South Yorkshire, and the flour in the pastry all comes from our miller in Driffield who buys directly from the farmers in Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire.
