I've wanted to get really good at making bread, (which I find a real challenge), so as a sort of unofficial New Year's resolution I've decided to keep trying until I can make it well.
Yesterday, it was a full day, (from 9am til 8pm), of brioche dough, but it was well worth it! (The day previous, I tried a raisin bread from The River Cottage Family Cookbook and it didn't rise properly. It was heavy). This brioche recipe was from Mastering the Art of French Cooking, Vol. 2, and it was light and flakey and really tasty with strawberry jam this morning.
While waiting for things to proof in the kitchen, I also worked on a new print design. I've finished it, but haven't decided yet whether I want to make it into a card or small print. I'll post photos when I've printed it.
Oh yeah, and I changed the appearance of my website a little! I'm really happy with the way it looks now. Here it is! I'm adding new work to it all the time, so please check back.
Time for second breakfast?
