There is a huge revival in baking that must make many of our grandparents smile. It’s as though we all think that we are the first people to make our own soda bread or that we’re home-baking the first ever ciabatta. I like this domestic pride and renaissance in bread. In fact, it’s another classic example of people taking more responsibility for their own food and anyone who condemns it is obviously not a true fan of bread. The excellent thing about the artisan way of baking is that it celebrates individuality instead of simply the uniform bread of commercial factories. I love the experimentation with textures and taste combinations which I feel puts the art into artisan. To truly master bread you need to put in the hours and if you don’t have time to bake yourself then I would suggest finding a bakery near you that sells Real Bread.
