First up, it’s Real Bread Maker Week! Head over to the Real Bread Campaign website to read more about ‘the only national week exclusively dedicated to celebrating artificial-additive-free loaves and the local bakers who make ‘em’. If you’re a campaign member, you can also pick up discount codes for flours from Marriage’s and Shipton Mill.
In other news:
- From breadwinners to breadmakers: Last month’s Observer Food Monthly featured the E5 Bakehouse over in East London, posing the question: “What drives a bunch of thirtysomething men bristling with PhDs to start a bakery in east London?”
- Dough Nuts: The Independent reports on a ‘rising trend’: men who bake their own bread. With an emphasis on the ‘men’ part. Really?
Lastly, during some recent sourdough pizza research, I happened across this Youtube video of Italy’s national team of ‘acrobati pizzaioli’, who take pizza spinning to whole new levels. Who ever said don’t play with your food?
