By Bread Alone…

The Bread Truck

Some time ago I gave up eating bread. Those of you who know me know that I bake bread often. It is a family staple and I love experimenting with different flours and sourdough starters, artisan style breads and breads with fruit and seeds. So it was quite a big deal to stop eating bread.

But I think I feel better for not overdoing it in the bread department. I have learnt to make a ‘sandwich’ without bread, to find alternatives to the thousand and one ways we eat fast food by wrapping and containing it some sort of bread product.

But I miss it….nothing beats beautiful handcrafted bread. I remember when we lived in London, there was a weekend market that sold truck loads of the most amazing baguettes, cobs, rolls and the like. This truck brimming with great looking French style bread took me back to my wanders down Northcote Road… can almost smell the fresh bread can’t you? Do you make your own bread? I have the best no knead, no (…insert hard work, time consuming nonsense!) recipe. Would you like it?
