But first. Doggies.

They loitered and lounged while I toiled away in the kitchen.

Anyway. This was my best bread yet!

And a delicious Sunday lunch to pair with it:

What made this bread different? I think knowing my oven made a big difference (I can’t turn the top element off – argh! So now I  flip the bread over for the last 7 minutes of the bake), as did knowing the ideal texture of the dough and getting a better handle on kneading. The stone-ground wheat flour I used also had a delicious texture.

What a winning recipe!

The rest of the lunch was really delicious too.

After watching American contestants on Masterchef bungle up what looked like a fairly straightforward lamb technique, my husband rolled up his sleeves and decided to give that a try too. It was completely delicious and well worth it.
