Bread like your Mum made...

Post by Who2 »

Or for the artisan bakery market....

So as our baker is using cheap crap russian flour, I decided to bake my 2nd ever batch of bread.
These loaves are a Mrs Beaton's enriched wholemeal recipe...plus....
I used to make better bread aged 8 than I do hitting 70.

Living in trendy Clerkenwell everything is artisan crafted this and that, bread shops nearly outdo coffee shops.

Mine looks the part but is crap, kneading dough for 10 minutes is knackering as an 8 year old, I used to throw it on the floor from the worktops, whilst getting a slap round the legs..
Seems like I have to start a sourdough, I think I'll just try cheese straws instead.

These are cheese loaves as I liked the look of the recipe on the opposite page...

Take that French Poilâne Bread family £10quid loaf....
A well know and travelled local Egyptian mate lived with one of Poilane's daughters in Paris.
The old man even had his own private jet years back..

12 months apprenticed in a top west end hotel's pastry was enough for me..'thanks...
I really hate anything to do with pastry (except eating it) even hating That Great British Bake off, sick TV... 8)

I'm getting really fed up with this artisan bread malarky.
My 7th loaf, Nick stated "it could be alright if we now toast it.

So now, I'm going back to a basic bread recipe Flour, Water, Salt, Yeast... 8)
