Hello everyone and welcome to my menu. A bit more variety as I have now a fully working yet young rye levain which I'll put through its paces in the coming weeks, starting next week:
Friday: Wild West (standard or large), Pan Marino, Rugbrod (half or whole), B&W sesame and Chocolate sourdough (contains Hazelnut as well as Soja because of chocolate). Honey (set or runny) also available with every bread order.
Order by Monday 5PM please and remember that I've moved to collection only until further notice. Wait for my text on baking day Friday by 5PM, earlier if I can, before setting off so that your order is indeed ready to be picked up. Have a great week!
So the wheat levain did work out last week and so did my Wild Wests. Hurray! Now I just need to bring a rye levain back into life! This week, we will have a fairly white week again until I get my darker levain going so here goes...
Ordering deadline is Monday 5PM. Please do collect if you can and I will gradually move to collection only in the coming weeks.
Friday: Wild West (standard or large), Pan Marino, 3–grain and my Lincs plum bread.
Have a good week
Thanks for your patience with me on this first week back and my epic fail on the Wild West front. As those of you who ordered WW this week already know, I had to bin 18kg of dough as things went completely wrong on Thursday. I think the starter that had been kept for a month and only refreshed twice got too weak and acidic. When I used it to build up the levain for the WW, the wholemeal flour in the levain supercharged the mix and I didnt catch it in time so it failed in the dough. All the other loaves which are on white flour levain went fine.
So anyway, I wasnt going to bake this week as I have a training course on Friday in London but I've decided that in fact I'm going to try the Wild West again on Thursday. So this week is down to bare bones for those of you who missed out this week and those who are happy with Wild West:
ORDERING DEADLINE: MONDAY 5PM - baking day: THURSDAY and COLLECTION ONLY!
Wild West in standard or large size. That's it! As it's all I'll have time to do! You can also order honey if you want to.
We are back baking this week. I should say I am back baking this week as it seems that I've lost my delivery boy (more on that below). I hope everyone had a good break if you manage to go away.
This week we will have all sourdough on wheat-based levain as my rye levain died of neglect during my holiday (it's not the first time and it's easy enough to start a new one, I just need another week)
Baking day remains Friday:
Wild West (standard or large), Pan Marino, Fig & Fennel, Turmeric, nigella and onion. Honey also available with any bread order.
Please place your order by Tuesday 5PM. From now on, Jules wont be helping me any longer in the bakery as he's got other activities on Friday night so if you can pick up your loaf that will be great. If you cant and your order is £6+ and you live in Comberton, I will deliver it to you as we used to.
