My August

One Mile Bakery What a treat to be invited to the One Mile Bakery. I love baking but had never tried making a yeasted loaf before. My bread making efforts have taken the form of flatbreads and soda bread so learning something new excited me. I spent the best part of a day with BoudiccaRead more
