Scrumptious loaves made by Laura, Bob and Lynn at a 'Real & Slow' TTW bread making session this afternoon in Wivenhoe.
|the proud bread heads|
This was a bit of a test run to see what was possible in an afternoon. In between mixing and kneading, proving, shaping and baking we discussed the numerous benefits of 'slower fermentation', the horrors of the average modern loaf full of enzymes and other harmful junk, the sensuous joy of kneading, sourdoughs, making natural leaven and Community Supported Bakeries
I really enjoyed sharing some of the skills I have learned from working at the Slow Dough Bakery. I hope we can find ways to share and spread bread making skills and get local shops selling the real thing too.
