We’re pretty serious about our bread at Scarlet with almost everything made on site. That does mean we’ve perfected our loaves – especially our easy-as-pie recipe for white bread.
Makes 1 large loaf
- 570g White Bread Flour
- 16g Sugar
- 16g Fresh Yeast
- 13g Salt
- 300ml of warm water then more to correct consistency
Add the yeast into a bowl with the warm water and set aside to let the yeast activate. It should become frothy.
Place the flour, salt and sugar into a large bowl and add the water, start to mix together. ( a kitchen aid with a dough hook is most useful here, if not, you’ll have to get your hands dirty!), you may have to add more water depending on the flour used. When a dough is formed tip out of the bowl and begin to knead very well until a smooth, soft dough is formed. Place in a bowl, cover with a damp cloth and leave to prove in a warm place until doubled in size (half and hour to an hour) Knock the dough back by kneading again, make into desired shape or place in a bread tin and leave to prove again.
Cook in hot oven 200 degrees until the crust is crisp and the bread sounds hollow when tapped.

What’s your job?
Looking after guests.
Describe the Scarlet:
Tranquil, relaxing, beautiful.
What do you like best about your job?
I like the variation. It’s a great organisation. You get regular training.
What do you love most about working for the Scarlet?
When guests come back and remember your name and say they’re glad to see you!
The summer is certainly upon us, and what better way to enjoy the sunshine than with a cold, sparkling drink in your hand. Imagine sitting on our retreat terrace reclining in a comfy lounger overlooking the sea with the perfect G&T or glass of fizz in your hand…
If you can’t make it to the Scarlet this summer, here are our favourite drinks to enjoy alfresco which are easy to recreate at home.
Whether you pop in while passing, or you’re a guest staying with us for a while, take time to wander round and discover some of the beautiful and surprising sculptural pieces that we have here at the Scarlet.
This way of baking beetroots really gives them a wonderful tenderness – and look amazing when opened from their salty shells. Adding some tangy goats curd, pickled shallots and rich honey, you’ll be on to a winner this summer.
