Our Oatcake recipe, is an old family recipe dating from 1966, when richards father and grandparents opened an oatcake shop above a butchers shop in Leek. The shop then moved to a shop on London Bank in Leek, named Leek oatcakes. Richard worked in this shop from the age of 14 and learned how to bake in the traditional manner by hand which he prides himself on still using today.
