It has been a while since I have posted about a bread. Especially one where I have made up the recipe.
So here is one. A wholemeal and Khorasan loaf. This came out of discussing Khorasan with Han-Na, and I thought why not make one myself.
Yesterday saw a trip to the velodrome in Newport with a return journey via Shipton Mill. The perfect combination of bread and bikes. The velodrome was great as usual but having never been to Shipton Mill I was intrigued to see what I would find. What I left with was 7 kg of new flour and a new book, and that made me very happy.
I get bored quite easily, and so am constantly looking for new things to try. This is very applicable to bread, but I have felt limited by the availability of ingredients so far. Specifically I have been wanting to try a Rye bread, partially motivated by the Hairy Bikers – Bakeation – Scandinavian Rye Bread. So I ordered some flour online from Shipton Mill, and because they charge £5 for postage I had to buy enough to make it worth while.
