No bread is an island

...entire of itself. (With apologies to John Donne!)
I live and breathe breadmaking. I’m an evangelist who would like everyone to make his or her own bread. I want to demystify breadmaking and show it as the easy everyday craft that it is. To this end I endeavour to make my recipes as simple and as foolproof as I possibly can.

I call my blog 'No bread is an island' because every bread is connected to another bread. So a spicy fruit bun with a cross on top is a hot cross bun. This fruit dough will also make a fruit loaf - or Chelsea buns or a Swedish tea ring...
I'm also a vegan, so I have lots of vegan recipes on here - and I'm adding more all the time.

MY BREADMAKING WEEK - starting 13/1/14

Began with a large granary-type loaf I made for my daughter which I almost ruined:

Split opening up from this end
Included 400g of melted yeast - scroll down to 14th January for the sad, sorry saga! :(

A missed #BreadChat. Unfortunately, these chats with other breadmakers around the world, on Twitter, are always held on Wednesday evenings - and I was teaching the first session of my evening class.

And went on to include a pie filled with Thai curry and made with a bread dough

Thai curry filling with chunks of tempeh. 

And, with both my community evening class and my family learning class, soda bread and fancy dinner rolls.

And spicy fruit naans,
