Truly a work of art!

Uhhh ... What bread are you going to eat? I assume the one you pictured will be framed and hung on a wall.

I looked at your pics and have decided:

Can I pay your airfare and you come and teach me all that you know? 

lol.

Seriously, you have such a wonderful talent.  I am green with envy.

ooops. tnx for all the compliments.

its a recipe from "the bread book" (collister blake)

its not really difficult to make, nor excessive timeconsuming (shaping in less than 30 minutes the first time)

the challenge is in the yeast: use too much and your work will explode in the final rising in the oven. too little and you'll get a dead dough, a beautifull sculpture but  tasteless bread.

or google on ciril hitz for dead dough sculptures
