Give us this day...

Fresh bread as part of our Breakfast at our B&B AccommodationThanks to a the recommendation of a good friend I have been converted to the ways of the River Cottage Bread Handbook – excellent theory and practise of making bread, easy recipes and great advice.  I have learned the ‘bakers ratios’, how to tell if the dough needs a bit more kneading and probably most impressively the secret of the oven spring (basically cranking the oven as high as it will go for the first 10 mins of baking to get even better rise….)

Anyway I hope this bread tastes as good as it looks – I am hoping to be able to make this part of our Salt Spring breakfast at Cosy Woodpecker Cottage in 2013…so if you love good bread, come and visit!
