Meet the Makers | Learn English with Baking

 

 

At Blue Noun English Language School we offer diverse activities for all our English language learners and our local community – bringing people together in new, social ways.
 
It’s not every small town in Scotland lucky enough to have such an excellent bakery as Crieff does.
 
Campbell’s Bakery – trading since 1830 – are opening their kitchens to the community for bread-making workshops with Iain Campbell, winner of British Confectioner’s Association Cup (2012) and an entertaining and excellent teacher.
 
Campbell’s Bakery has invited Blue Noun English language learners to take their bread-making workshop: putting English into practice in a very fun and tasty way!

You really can learn English with baking!

 
Come learn English with us, and you too can be soon admiring a beautiful crusty loaf, thinking… I just made that- and leave us with baking skills (and English skills) to last you a lifetime!

The Pie of All Pies | ‘Our’ Iain is Ewan McGregor’s Favourite baker!

 

We think Campbell’s Bakery in Crief is pretty amazing, but don’t just take our word for it.

In 2013, Star Wars actor (and Crieff native) Ewan McGregor told his 117,000 Instagram fans that Campbell’s Bakers in his hometown of Crieff, Perthshire, make the “Pie of all Pies”.

He posted a photo of a Scotch pie adding the caption: “Ahh…. the Pie of all Pies. The King!”

He’s also tweeted about his hometown bakery too. (In fact, Ewan McGregor shows up and speak up for his hometown very regularly – which as you can imagine is a real boost to the small businesses of the town).

Established in 1830, Campbell’s Bakery is an independent family-run craft bakery, however we are by no means stuck in our ways! ​

In addition to traditional Scottish favourites such as scotch pies, oatcakes and shortbread, we also make a wide variety of breads and cakes inspired by different areas around the world.

A quick note from the author

We began the Blue Noun blog back in 2019, when we called ourselves a ‘language school’ (we now call ourselves a language hub) and we were building up our business completely from scratch.

Our first few months were spent making friends in the community, researching homestay hosts for our language guests and finding out about all the good local places and activities to take our language learning guests.

In 2021 we moved the Blue Noun website to a different platform. We had the option of deleting these old blogs – they are very different form our current, more pedagogic style of posting, but I think they are quite charming to see how our young business grew, turning from a language school run by an artist – into a language hub which really began to focus on coaching artists in English by immersing them in creative environments.
