Behold His Majesty The Loaf.
I love making bread. You have to be having a spinster’s day in really, for all the sticking it in a warm place to rise and then kneading it and letting it rise again, but really it’s a lovely thing to do. Vincent’s recipe actually makes two loafs and I was going to give this one to my date tonight. But alas, he stood me up so there will be no loaf for him! I used the herbs from Jane and Trix’s garden.
Vincent is so wise and here is what he says in The Treasury of Great Recipes about making bread: “In the high-flying jangle of my professional rounds, I’ve found that two things can get me back to earthbound composure – gardening and bread making.”
So even before I knew I’d need to get back to earthbound composure, I had stored some up in advance.
