Last time I came here in London in May, my goal was to try all the good food I could find in London, specifically English things like the Full English Breakfast that I got a great overview of at Grounded or my  first Fish & Chips that I ate at a Weatherspoons pub, the Montagu Pyke. Both were the most awesome discoveries and I strongly recommend those places to eat at when you're here. At some point, came the opportunity to eat something at an English Market, so I tried some things from the Bread Ahead Bakery - and absolutely HAD to share the experience. 

I am an intermittent faster and have been for several months now. I also don't eat rice, pasta or bread often and pay closely attention to eating mostly natural foods that I have prepared for myself. But when I'm on vacation, boy, there's no second thought about treating myself.

I first came across the name Bread Ahead Bakery while looking for the best donuts in London. I was actually looking for ring donuts, the kind that has jam or cream in it and loads of sugary crap on top that brings you the instant gratification you need when you choose to eat this but instead, I came across the Best doughnuts in London under the name Bread Ahead Bakery and boy, I never regretted having chosen that over the rings that I could have gotten from Krispy Kreme, for instance.

Bread Ahead Bakery has a stand at the entrance of Borough Market that sells bread and amazing Cinnamon Rolls and Sinner Cinnamon Rolls that I couldn't resist but if you'd like to have the doughnuts and other kinds of fancy, tasty food, their bakery is right outside Borough Market so all you have to do is turn left when you leave the market and you'll see the bakers setting up the stand and even some baking inside.

The really amazing thing about Bread Ahead, and why I support them as strongly is that it is also a baker's school. I love supporting new artists and apprentices and I loved seeing them behind the glass, making dough and their dream come true.

The first thing I tried from Bread Ahead was the Sinner Cinnamon Bun. I most certainly didn't want to miss out on that. At some point in your life, when you've eaten as much as I have and have observed and thought over what you're eating, you know if the thing you're going to eat is going to be mind-blowing or absolute garbage. Seeing those Sinner Buns, I knew. You recognize the value of work and the beauty of artistry when you see those. Sweet, spicy Buns with a thick cream just slightly sweet, something so good that I'm actually salivating while writing the post. Soft, soft bun, chewy and fresh. Ugh. Isn't it the best time for your boyfriend to say he doesn't like it and you find you can finish it all by yourself?

And then, the doughnuts. I think we're around 3 or 4 pounds per Cinnamon Roll and doughnut and they're honestly well worth your money. Doughnuts in France are way cheaper so at first, when I ate at Crosstown Doughnuts for instance - one of the best places on Earth BTW, I thought people were out of their minds. But all those places are amazing and I'm okay buying less often and enjoy my moment more with real art, you know?

To satisfy everyone's cravings and preferences, my boyfriend got a Raspberry jam-filled doughnut and I got a Vanilla cream one, apparently the best known and best seller to the bakery. I love heavy cream, butter and stuff of the like, always have and that cream was ointment for my soul. So sweet, so soft, left my palate creamy for minutes after I had bitten in the most amazing dough I had ever had in my life. What about the Raspberry one? Tangy, sweet with a real Raspberry taste that made me so, so happy too... I just couldn't get enough and it was all I could do not to run back to the store to try one of the three other permanent flavors. Do yourself a f(l)avor and try one ASAP.
