I like Scottish Plain, especially when toasted.
Tiger bread/rolls are also very tasty.
favourite variation of bread - i.e. rolls, baguettes etc
Do crumpets/potato scones etc come under the 'bread category'?
alright, pal? ;)
It's fucking rank.
only gluten free stuff I've had is brownies and the like, which are pretty tasty 'cos they're brownies.
What is gluten free bread like? Does it have a different texture?
Same with biscuits, I found.
poor glucose-intolerant people, they're missing out :(
turns out glutens are *really* important in certain foods being delicious.
Although it isn't that adaptable. Soda bread and houmous is up there with my favourite meals. Need to make some soon actually, I've totally slacked off baking lately.
In terms of everyday bread - sourdough (rye if I want extra points), or bagels (New York Bagel Co. if bought from a shop).
love that the NY Bagels come pre-cut these days
But it's genuinely improved my life - they're just way better at cutting bagels than I am. You still need to use a knife to finish them off sometimes (they're more perforated than cut) but you don't end up with any fucking useless swollen frankenbagel halves that don't fit in your cheap non-brand toaster w/out bagel setting.
or ending up with 2 totally uneven sides.
I'm not very dextrous.
bit too intellectual for me.
have become somewhat inaccessible
Really nice, though.
I kind of expected it to be more... sumptuous? I don't know why.
but the best sliced bread is burgen soya and linseed.
naan bread, wraps, baguettes, burger rolls. different breads for different... needs.
it's a great deal but it means i buy other possibly less desirable bread out of spite if i'm not in iceland because it's at least £1.50 everywhere else
(actually the vogel's equivalent one makes better toast bc it's really dense)
iceland is the best place.
but I still think you can't beat a decent crusty white loaf. From a proper bakers I mean, not the cheap pre-sliced rubbish from the supermarkets.
Pick them up most weekend morns from my local deli and they're always still warm from the oven, yum!
any old bakers as well, it doesn't need to be a fancy one. Even a supermarket bakers with their bought-in pre-made dough when it is super fresh is fucking delightful.
you can get from the supermarket? Just standard hovis stuff or whatever, you just chuck it in the oven. Bit of a gimmick but pretty nice to have warm, oven bread.
Rye soda bread as well - the king of breads. Used coconut milk and lemon juice instead of buttermilk - worked fine with almond milk the last time I made it but am suspicious of using coconut milk in cooking 'cause it's so thin.
Basically, I have the other half of the bag of rye flour left. What's my next loaf, guys? Shall I go through the hassle of making a sourdough starter only for the loaf itself to be disappointing yet again?
Even better than Warburtons (big claim - but true)
Hovis converted me
y'know, the unsliced one?
bagels question: please can someone explain exactly how REAL bagels differ from the New York bagels you get in all the shops here?
commercially produced bagels are steamed rather than boiled before baking (presumably 'cause it's easier)
Is someone denigrating you for buying your bagels from the supermarket or something? I've made bagels a couple of times and they were fucking stellar but it's way too much effort to do more than like twice a year.
that New York bagels aren't, like, real New York bagels, like, you can only even *get* proper New York bagels if you go to New York and buy them.
and I just... \_(?)_/
very curious as to if they really are that much more delicious and special.
which I guess they would if they've been doing it for generations, and bagels are way nicer fresh just like any bread so there's that too. I think it's a difference of degree in quality rather than a difference in type though.
One of the things I miss most about London is the bagel shops.
As long as it's more on the chewy side rather than crusty.
crusty on the outside, chewy in the middle
like the ones you usually get falafel and stuff in. they were deeply disappointing. sticking to standard tortilla from now on.
always and forever
