I received the newsletter from Doves Farm the organic flour makers which flagged up the celebration next week. This year I've started baking bread again and I love doing it on many levels. It makes me feel connected to the earth, to the people who've created the ingredients I use and of course I love the bread being mine and fresh.
My current working book is Dan Lepard's River Cottage Book. It's a bit serious in some places but very inspirational and I made my first crumpets earlier this year with great success. Hot buttered crumpets on a wet afternoon. Wonderful.
