Olive bread tonight. Bread’s just flour (strong white and mixed grain this time), dried yeast, olive oil, salt and olives of course.I think my best yet, just the right amount of oven time and moisture. Left it to rise a long time while I went swimming and gardening. The olives turned the white flour into a rather pleasant dark grey colour. Here’s a picture. Shared it with my friend Louise. Will make a delicious lunch tomorrow.
I'm new to blogging. I love the idea of keeping an online diary about my life in London. I like the idea that similarly minded people can peep into my life and find things to laugh about and nod in agreement (or not). I've lived in London for 21 years and come from Melbourne. This blog increasingly is becoming a diary of my growing baking interests. I've made a deal with myself to bake a loaf of bread every week and so for the last 2 months I have. I love to cook especially for friends. I have my own inner city allotment just 5 mins cycle away at King Henry's Walk and try to subsist in Summer. Please feel free to comment; I love to engage.
