Announcing Workshop! Come, bake bread, break bread and have fun!

 

Real Bread – Baking and Beyond

Follow the smell of freshly baked bread and you will find yourself at the doorstep of endless possibilitiesFresh baked bread, right out of the oven is in itself a heart warming experience. But have you ever tried a slice of grilled French bread with melted chocolate, olive oil and flaky sea salt? Or delicious warm cornbread that works magic with ham or a jalapeno and garlic dip? We think its time you did!

At our ‘Real Bread’ workshop, we welcome you to discover breads. Learn to bake them but also find new ways of experiencing them.

1.  Learn three traditional recipes with which you can bake amazing bread at home –

  • Pain Ordinaire – A classic, crusty yet soft French style yeasted bread which lends itself to great variety from rolls to baguette and flatbreads
  • Buttermilk cornbread – Traditional bread of the American Indians made with cornmeal, slightly sweet, known to work very well with spicy cuisines.
  • Irish soda bread – The quintessential bread from Ireland –  quick to put together, crusty and tender at the same time.

And because food must be fun as well as creative, at our workshop, we will help you add your own personal touch to each dish you make. Stay with the classic version we teach or turn it up a notch by experimenting with flavorings and shapes to create your own signature bread.

2.  Wrap up with a fun tapas style party because in our kitchen, hardwork is always rewarded. Pair the breads you just baked yourself, with an assortment of cold cuts, cheeses, nuts, dips, roast fruits and vegetables, and join us to discover the fabulous combinations that breads can lend themselves to. And oh yes, do bring your wine along!!

 The workshop will be run in our domestic kitchen, so anything we do together you can do at home.  The group size will be kept small and intimate so we can all share, discuss, experiment and indulge in plenty of food talk. Lots of hands-on learning, kneading, shaping, tasting, drinking and plenty of the fruits of your labour to take home. Its our idea of a party. If its yours too, reserve your spot quickly.

Simit – With this ring, I thee fed

IMG_0993We once made elaborate plans of visiting Turkey. Much, discussion, exploration, sharing was undertaken … weeks of research … we were so so excited. We dreamt of the architecture our eyes would drink in, history that we would inhale, people we would know, bits of culture we would bring back.  It would be life changing we were sure. Read more

Rice paper salad rolls

IMG_9823

I absolutely love these rolls. Light, fresh and oh so pretty, they totally blew me over. The dipping sauce is a clever little mix of the right sauces, resulting in a beautifully balanced tangy-spicy-salty-sweet thin nectar that lightly coats the rolls, transforming the yummy crunchy fresh roll into a thing of even more joy. Do give this a shot. Healthy. Easy as pie. Refreshing. Delicious. You would never believe it is almost a salad. Read more

5 easy ways to dress up your daily bread

IMG_7231I looooove freshly baked bread and as a consequence we always have an abundance of it at our home. Which maybe also why I am always on the look out for new simple ways to eat good bread. Great bread actually needs not much else to make a fantastic meal. But there are always some bread ‘dos’ that invariably works well, are super easy to put together and allow the bread along with other simple fresh ingredients to shine. Here are the top 5 of my current favourites.. Read more
