My father was a night-baker. It wasn't an enjoyable job. Working through the night, he didn't have much of a home life - it was a bit like being a miner, and working-class folk weren't looked after. Yet he still baked at home, too: not much bread, but cakes, pies, black buns. If a girl in the local congregation was getting married, he'd bake the wedding cake and decorate it as well.
He could never keep ルイヴィトンアウトレット away from baking. We would go on http://louisvuitton.michikusa.jp holiday and he would head for the local bakehouse - to see how they did things differently and how they did things wrong. He would buy bread and cakes, break them open, inspect, press and smell them, then announce exactly what wasn't right about them.
I would watch my father baking at home. He didn't teach me as such - the last thing he wanted was for me to follow him into baking in a factory - but I feel I have inherited from him the skill of handling dough. I see his hands in my hands as I knead and shape.
I like to potter around baking bread when I have a few hours in the house, tending to it now and again. I bake in batches of three, putting one or two in ルイヴィトンアウトレット the freezer to use later. My first bread recipes came from the actress Claire Neilson, and I'm still using them. My bread bible is Andrew Whitley's Bread Matters - it includes intricate explanations of things like "sponge", which I remember my father going in to the factory to prepare on Sunday for the Monday loaves.
My favourite bread is airy like ciabatta, but I love spelt loaves, too. My wife, Anne, says you can tell the difference between shop-bought and home-baked, like you can with cake. And it makes a really nice gift. I often give people bread - I once took a loaf for Richard and Judy - and people are always touched.
