Bill Buford Baking on BBC TV

It's a good week for baking in the UK on BBC TV, last night the entertaining Bill Buford spent some time in Lyon learning alongside "Bob the baker", very interesting to see an experienced french baker handling the dough so gently and scoring the loaves expertly and tonight we have another programme on bread (BBC4 9PM). And last week The One Show had their food guy Jay Rayner handing round slices of sourdough that looked like Poilaine - baking - it's the new rock & roll!. Cheers, Steve

Hi Peter, yeah the pig slaughter was a bit gross,  but he did go back to the bakery after that section. Cheers Steve

Thanks.  I had missed that programme but - now I want one of those mixers, just a bit smaller.  Looks better than any KA or Kenwood.
