Sorry I’ve been away for a while. I had to work on some household projects, but hopefully back a bit more regularlyagain now. It’s good to see some activity here.

This is just some sourdough bread I made using a starter gifted by my brother. I couldn’t resist cutting it whilst it was still slightly warm:)





  1. You’ve been watching too many cookery programmes on TV! I am glad that your household projects have completed (hopefully successfully). The bread looks pretty inviting and would do well for the sandwich I shall need at lunchtime when out today! It’s interesting that the framing makes that little jug seem just a tiny bit human.

  2. I think the white balance helps create the warm homely feel that comes with the smell of warm bread.

  3. Thanks for commenting.

    The other projects are now at the stage that I can give myself a little bit of time back to make some pictures and, next, to start a bit of writing again… I hope.

    Actually, I don’t watch TV cookery programs at all. I find their blend of aspiration and image far from my enjoyment of food and breaking bread. However, the base recipe for the sourdough does emanate from a River Cottage book. I like the notion of the human jug too.

    Rex, yes I left the white balance quite warm to reflect the environment the picture was taken in.

  4. the bread looks very good, I’ve tried soudough from my own starters made according to a Weston A Price book, did not work out quite as good looking as this. Christmas this year I was given rye flour, ginger, flax seeds and a tray, still wonderng what to make.
    Warm and homely, the warmth on my monitor makes the colour balance very obvious and for me that detracts, a little.

  5. I hope that one day I will have the opportunity to taste this in person. In the meanwhile, the picture is the next best thing.
