Routine is kicking in, and we're back to baking. While the twins were staying with my parents, Floris and I enjoyed a one-child trip to Nijmegen and the walking tour permitted us to sneak into a few shops as well. (There is an awesome child book store in Nijmegen!) We bartered: games-shops against mine (cooking supplies, antiques). Luckily we're both avid readers so books were no trouble at all.
In De Slegte (second hand book chain) I found two gems! Beth Henspergers "Bread for all seasons" and Nigel Slaters "Appetite" both for next to nothing! It really pays off to browse.
I am very happy with Beth and the first bread I baked was this one, in the Römertopf (or cloche). Very tasty bread, I really like the crust on this one, crackly and beautifully browned rustic appearance.
