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.

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!

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