Alison Graham said in a recent Radio Times, as she was reviewing the last programme “The Beowulf of Bread, Paul Hollywood, goes continental and makes a baguette or, as he prefers, ‘one of the most iconic breads in the world’.
His baguettes look nothing like the ones you buy in the shops that, says Hollywood, are ‘the colour of clouds, they are too white’. His own baguettes are bronzed and lovely. Very much like Hollywood himself.”
Since Bob mentioned his own attempts at breadmaking in church the other week, a friend has generously given him a copy of the book of the new TV series [thanks!] So yesterday Bob made baguettes!
They were amazing!! Bob cooked them in a proper baguette tray [£7.99 from Clas Ohlsen in Norwich. Lakeland also sell them for £9.99] I am concerned that all this fabulous bread is going to play havoc with my attempts to maintain a healthy weight.
