9th February 2017….home-made bread


For a present our children paid for a bread-making course for us at The Old Bakery Cawsand. It was run by the owner Chris Gunn who together with his wife Liz have made a very successful business at the premises selling sour dough bread, running a cafe and a B+B. We spent a whole day learning how to make sour dough bread, and rye bread, and baguettes, and pizzas and very enjoyable it was too. We came home laden with the fruits of our hard day’s work (and it was non-stop apart from lunch), but the next day with the aid of the starters provided by Chris we launched our home bread-making and the first results seen above were creditable and certainly tasted wonderful. Now that’s what I call a good present!
