Understanding the best way of giving us all our daily bread - Martin Hesp for the Western Daily Press

Understanding the best way of giving us all our daily bread - Martin Hesp for the Western Daily Press

There was a time when the term “artisan baker” would not have been used, simply because all bakers fitted the dictionary definition. Artisan: worker in a skilled trade making things by hand. Then, after a man called Otto Rohwedder developed a bread-slicing machine in 1912, the baking world entered an age of wall-to-wall mechanisation.

Emmer and honey sandwich loaf

Emmer and honey sandwich loaf

The mixture of emmer flour with added honey in this dough produces a darker bake with an amazing depth of flavor and a slight sweetness in this sandwich loaf. The dough will be soft and sticky, and you may find it “splodges” into the pan, but it then grows and bakes to a perfect loaf, so do not worry if you find the shaping challenging. It is worth the effort!
