Lily is the owner and founder of Lily's Loaf, a micro bakery in South London that specialises in handmade organic sourdough bread, fresh pastries and other baked goods free from dairy eggs and nuts.
"Ever since I was a baby, I have been severely allergic to dairy, eggs and nuts; something which can be difficult to navigate when eating out, but was probably one of the many reasons why I fell in love with the kitchen from a young age.
In many ways, having these allergies is what has always inspired me to put my own spin on recipes that didn't really exist when I was little. It was my Grannie, a brilliant cook and baker herself, who used to re-write traditional recipes using thrifty wartime substitutions for eggs and dairy, who showed me that we could always tweak something here or there to concoct delicious creations.
So my dream is for anyone to "walk into" Lily's Loaf and feel relaxed that they are taken care of and can enjoy delicious fresh homemade goods like everyone else!"
There's something special about watching Lily on Instagram bake our sourdoughs and for them to still arrive warm every Tuesday morning.
If you are interested in buying sourdough online, you can get a loaf through SW Fruit & Veg. Just order one of our favourite fruit and veg boxes and you'll be able to add in some of Lily's incredible fresh sourdoughs too, which will arrive on your doorstep still warm. You can choose from the South London Organic Sourdough, Gluten-Free Sourdough and WildFarmed Wholegrain Sourdough as well as a few tasty treats and pastries.
