Meet the Bakers: Norman

Norman is a true Scot and lives on the northeast coast of Scotland. Now retired, Norman joined the Merchant Navy at the age of 17 in which he worked as a radio operator and travelled the world. Norman’s father and brother were bakers, but he didn’t want that lifestyle for himself. However, he would like to bring back traditional Scottish recipes and has contacted some of his father’s old apprentices to revive some of the more traditional Scottish bakes that he fears are being lost. Despite being fiercely Scottish he takes his Caravan to Perpignan in France and some of his baking is inspired by French patisserie. Norman cultivates his own yeast starters to make his bread and uses it to brew his own beer and wine.
