On my most recent trip to the farmers market I swapped my normal chocolate brownie for a big bit of garlic and olive bread. This was a monumental decision. The switch from gooey chocolatey happiness to Don't Come Too Close garlicky goodness turned out to be a really rewarding one. Not good for the diet but a girl has to eat!
Bread is so basic. But. It's one of those foods that makes you wonder how on earth people thought to make it in the first place. I'm never really sure how much to trust Wikipedia but short of time to do any lengthy research I thought I'd chance its questionable content. Apparently the history of bread goes back some 30,000 years- but who's counting. A few of my bready favourites are mentioned on there too, chapatis, pitas and the hallowed NAAN. I'm going to give making these a go.
My dad, and fellow bread fan, bought me this book...
