Preparation (and the result)

Ten days ago we had a series of bread related workshops and talks here in Skye and Lochalsh from Andrew Whitley. http://www.breadmatters.com/

I've known Andrew for a long time, as another member of the Soil Association Processing Standards Committee, and I was really pleased to get a place on one of the two workshops (12 places on each). I have his book but nothing is better that being shown how to do something.

It's not an easy event to photograph as most of the time your hands are covered in dough!

This is the preparation before we started:




And this Russian Sourdough bread, just out of the oven, is what we made in that first session:




We also made ciabatta and challah - I did a seven stranded plait.

Ooh - that looks good - I can almost smell it from here.
That's just what I said!
How wonderful - I can almost smell your post! :)
I imagine that smelled heavenly! I don't eat most breads due to a yeast allergy, but I can certainly appreciate the smell of baked goods!
Ooooh, I love challah! Do you have a picture of that, too?
