Another weekend baking binge

It was another weekend baking binge as I experimented with local herbs for my pesto ciabatta. I subscribe to Dan Lepard's philosophy to use local ingredients and there was really no way I can continue to use herbs imported from Europe.

I experiment with a local herb called Laksa Leaf. It is so named as it is used mainly in this local dish. The flavor of the Ciabatta with the Laksa herb pesto was out of this world. When I made a tuna sandwich with the loaf, the herb complemented the tuna very well.

All your loaves look great to me!!! Especially the Golden Raisin Walnut Sourdough loaf...it is breakfast time here, and I sure I wish I had a few slices of that for some delicious toast :)
