Question asked “What do you remember about bread or bread baking”.

I do loads of baking, I use to make all my own bread when my children were at home, I don't anymore.  When my daughter came home from a year living in America her first meal of choice was an egg and cress sandwich on mums homemade bread.

I work for Total Bakery who make baking equipemnt and sell it all over the world.

My husband and I are going to make a wood fired bread oven in the garden.  He's a potter and has made his own kilns.

As a child my favourite bread was Hovis, with banana on, in fact I had a banana butty only the other week and I hadn't had one in years.
