    I'm thinking of going on a bread making course. ....

    One day at £75.00. I'm humming and Harring. Of course, it would make a nice Xmas prezzie :)

    Put the money toward a good bread making machine Richard. My wife has worn out four, and as long as you follow the recipes they really work well. I do recall, however, a couple of the first loaves were tossed into the garden for the birds. In the spring when the snow melted they were still there. I eventually broke them up with a pickaxe.

    A worthy investment Richard. Baking is one of the many skills we're losing to mechanization and industrialized food production.

    Of all my memories of my Grams, the one that sticks with me and makes me smile to this day, is of her baking.
    She would make bread and rolls twice a week. Because she was so short, she'd stand on a chair at the kitchen counter, to get the leverage she needed to properly knead the dough. Tiny she was but she had upper arms like Popeye. :)

    After I saw your post it reminded me I had some buttermilk leftover from Thanksgiving to use up. I found a recipe for Oatmeal Buttermilk Bread. I have it in the oven right now baking and I'll post some pictures of the whole process when it's done.
    Richard an excellent site to learn how to bake bread is The Fresh Loaf. It has tons of information on getting started and some excellent recipes including my first loaf and moving you up the ladder to working with bread and yeast doughs. They also have excellent advice for making sourdough and other artisan breads. I started baking when I was a young kid because my dad liked baking bread and pizza making. I almost became a pastry chef but an apprenticeship came up and I became a restaurant chef,but baking has always been my passion.

    Richard, as you are talking about bread making have you come across Judges bread, it's fantastic, the best bread I've ever tasted! Their shop is due south of you, down the M25 and A21 but they supply other shops too.

    And that chicken chilli would go down well here.

    I'm truly amazed at how these guys can make something as simple as a loaf of bread soooo tasty, there is a little deli that sells it nearby and if I'm in there I pick up a loaf.....or two!

    Another favorite bread they make is a cinnamon swirl with a frosted top. Oh that is so good with a little bit of butter. Great in the morning! :)
