Cheese & Onion Fougasse

Saturdays have become Soup Saturday here. Most weekends, even through the depths of a rather wet winter, Hubs has been working outside on building the pizza oven. This means lunches have to be quick, warm and grabbed when ever the time is convenient. Also soup means the labourers can spend as little time as possible …

Salted Caramel Chelsea Buns

Chilli & Blue Cheese Bread

Sometimes I get stuck in a rut with bread falling back on my favourite recipes. In local markets Claybrooke Mill often have a stall. They are a Leicestershire based mill that has milled award-winning flour since 1987 and are well-regarded locally. Many local producers use their products. As well as regular flour they sell strong flour mixes that …

Animal Bread

This summer holiday I ran a bread making workshop for children(age 4-11) where we made pizza and shaped rolls. Last year on my summer cookery club we made both focaccia and pizza so most of the pupils attending this year knew the basics of kneading dough.  Bread dough is such a fabulous medium for children …
