National Breadmakers Week

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.
