Bread making

Mr M is the master breadmaker in this household. He likes to make it the traditional way, on our worn counter, experimenting with different mixes of flour. As they bake, the flat is filled with mouthwatering aromas and are usually eaten with either pate or cheese for lunch.

I, on the otherhand, have never attempted bread for I am the master cake baker. But that is all about to change. This Saturday we're off to our local French restaurant for a bread making course. I'm so excited. I've even been practising albeit with pre-mix (yep, that's my first ever loaf in the photo!) because it would be rather odd to turn up having never made bread before. I'm also ever so slightly competitive...

The only tiny, little, miniscule problem is that Mr M is currently in America. He's due to leave this afternoon, so isn't officially 'stranded' just yet...

  1. Hope he's made it back in time for the course!

    I remember reading about this bread making course when you posted about the restaurant a little while ago (and I clicked into their website). Sounded wonderful.

    And your loaf looks very impressive! Sure you two will be star pupils!
