Rinks is a family owned business started by John's Grandfather who have been producing pizza dough, (amongst lots of other bakery goodies) for the last five years made to a recipe inspired by John's visits to pizza restaurants (and their kitchens) in the UK and Europe which are supplied to wholesalers and restaurants around the country.
I spent a morning there when pizza dough production was taking place and was given a guided tour by Robert. Rinks pizza dough is made from strong bread flour imported directly from Italy and they make white and wholemeal dough. It's mixed into a dough in a really big food mixer.....
Thank you very much to Robert and John for showing me around and making me feel so welcome. They sent me on my way with a big box of goodies including pizza dough, garlic slabs, Brioche and Focaccia bread.
I was inspired that evening to make a pizza using their dough and a recipe inspired by one John told me about - see what I made in my next blog. allie xx
