Alas.... I can't eat much of it because given the chance I'd eat my weight in the stuff!
But occasionally, I give in to the devil of temptation and bake a gorgeous artisanal loaf.
Hot off the oven, I cut thick slices of this heavenly stuff, slather with Kerrygold salted butter and drizzle with deep amber honey. As you can see, I have bread issues!
This recipe from Paul Hollywood is sensational. One of the great things about my job is that I work with fellow Culinary Instructors and that means I always surrounded by amazing talent and recipes. My colleague invited me to a demonstration of this bread and I was hooked!
Of course, no way was I going to someone's word for it and promptly set out to re-create the recipe in my home kitchen. As y'all know each recipe here is personally made by me and tested and tweaked before I bring it to all of you.
Now I cannot lie, Ive made changes. I found it quite painful to measure the tiniest bit of ingredients in gms. And neither do I think we need to be so OCD in our approach. Since then, I've made it several times using all purpose flour and bread flour and the results are fabulous.
So without much further ado, let's bake us a boule!
