  1. Apple and cinnamon Rolls

    Apple and cinnamon Rolls
    If you have a garden with an apple tree in it then it is more than likely that one year you’ll have no apples at all and the next, more than you really need. I cobbled together an apple press made from some bits of wood, kitchen worktop and a car jack, all in readiness for the overwhelming glut…maybe next...
  2. Parmesan & Caraway Pain de Mie

    Parmesan & Caraway Pain de Mie
    Le pain is French for bread, and le mie is the soft crumb. This loaf is wonderful for sandwiches and also makes fantastic toast. The best way to make a pain de mie is in a Pullman tin. It is a sealed pan which effectively stops a crust forming and maintains moistness and softness. The pain de mie is often...
  3. Sourdough breadsticks

    Sourdough breadsticks
    My barbecue needs to be put away. It hasn’t had much of an outing this year and I can see that the honeysuckle is steadily taking ownership, tendril by tendril. With a sigh, I think by mid October I ought really to be resigned to there not being much more sunshine, but we can still have reminders of summer and...
  4. Easy Flavoursome French Spelt Boule

    Easy Flavoursome French Spelt Boule
    I do like making sourdough and I like to think after all this time I am getting quite good at it. There are times though when the freezer is empty and hungry mouths need their packed lunches for the week ahead and I have not managed to get my starter ready. We found some sachets in France which I really...
  5. Savoury Chocolate Biscuits for Cheese

    Savoury Chocolate Biscuits for Cheese
    Last week was chocolate week, and Vanessa launched her book at Olympia in front of a huge crowd. We then got chatting about chocolate and she mentioned her famous savoury chocolate biscuits, from her first book Prepped. Chocolate and cheese? Really? “They go really well with cheese, especially cheddar,” Vanessa reassured me. In fact she said “It is such a...
  6. Ethiopian Honey Bread

    Ethiopian Honey Bread
    A common theme that you hear from British beekeepers (myself included) almost every year is that this has been a funny year and hopefully next year will be better. This year is no exception. My bees managed to build up quite a lot of honey this July and I went on holiday happy in the knowledge that there would be...
  7. Medieval Sourdough

    Medieval Sourdough
    Heritage is the buzzword in the bread baking world at the moment and it doesn’t come more authentic than from my friend, the small-scale grower, John Letts. We’ve had a delivery of this year’s harvest including blends that had been sold out since last November such as the very special Neolithic Blend Eincorn, along with the Iron Age Emmer and...
  8. Easy Sourdough Chocolate, Chestnut & Whisky Cake

    Easy Sourdough Chocolate, Chestnut & Whisky Cake
    Well this is it, Christmas is here. The fire is lit, the presents are wrapped the mince pies are made, and we are all smiling, full of festive cheer and enjoying spending time with family and friends…Well that is the dream…The reality is that most of us are running about trying to get a hundred jobs done while we gallop...
  9. Sausage stew and sourdough dumplings

    Sausage stew and sourdough dumplings
    One of the few things I really like about dark winters is the roast potatoes, stews and casseroles that magically emerge from the kitchen. The kind of food that warms you up, food like bread pudding, hot casseroles with torn off hunks of buttered bread and warm stews with dumplings. Dumplings speak to me of comfort, perhaps it is a...
  10. Onion bread

    Onion bread
    Onions and its cousins are flavours that compliment breads really well, especially in a chewy wholemeal loaf, so I asked Vanessa to see if she could combine some of our excellent Mulino Murino “Macina” flour with onions for a bread that can demand centre stage of a meal. The trick of this loaf is the combination of sweet wholemeal and...
