Day 178 – Made Grissini

Just a quick scroll through my done list will show how much I like baking bread: there's been sourdough (still not nailed this), baguettes, hot cross buns, and lots more. There's something so satisfying and a bit magical about making bread out of just four ingredients and seeing it all come together in a smooth… Continue reading Day 178 – Made Grissini

Day 167 – Baguettes

I'm back doing my favourite thing, making bread, and today I wanted to follow along with another Bread Ahead tutorial and make baguettes. I've made a lot of Italian bread, but rarely ventured into French bread, so why not start with one of the classics. The crusty French sticks are so soft and springy inside,… Continue reading Day 167 – Baguettes

Day 153 – Sourdough pizza

Oh, my ongoing sourdough saga continues. I still haven't managed to create a proper loaf despite having 3 different starters, but I did successfully make some sourdough crackers last week that built my confidence a bit.

Day 137 – Lavash and Pita bread

I'm back to doing what I love most: baking bread. My sourdough experiment is an ongoing effort (I'm on try 3 now and thankfully they're getting a little better each time), but whilst that's a long drawn out process, I wanted to whip up some nice and quick flatbreads to go with a Middle Eastern… Continue reading Day 137 – Lavash and Pita bread

Day 127 – Sourdough

I've mentioned many times how much I love making bread: it really ignites the senses – the feel of the dough coming together, seeing the rise in the oven, and let's not forget the amazing smell that fills the house. It's one of my favourite things to do, but like so many people over the… Continue reading Day 127 – Sourdough

Day 102 – Made Bagels

I've written before how much I love making bread, so I was excited to see that the Bread Ahead Bakery in London is doing daily tutorials on Instagram on different baked goods. I was intrigued to see bagels popped up on the schedule – my husband loves them, I am indifferent, but they require a… Continue reading Day 102 – Made Bagels
