Well what a lovely time at our Spring Community bake! It was the first sunny day in a LONG time and I was wondering if anyone would turn up at all but luckily they did!
The lovely new venue at Nuthall Methodist church has a lovely feel to it and turned out to be the perfect venue.
Bakers and musicians started turning up well before 2pm and before we knew it there were at least 15 humans (ie adults and children) ready to bake.
I think we had quite a lot of fun with this recipe – Wild Garlic focaccia. A few of us had already met a couple of days before in a lovely spot to collect basketfuls of wild garlic 🙂
As usual, we got baking as soon as we could (there must be time for the dough to rise of course!) and there is always plenty of time to socialise and chat in between and even while we are baking, though we were all having to concentrate a bit with the recipe.
Late-comers, who got a bit lost, declared they found us merely by the strong smell of garlic outside the hall (they were not even joking!).
Thanks must go to Dave and his lovely band of musicians from Middle Street Resource Centre in Beeston. We were treated to a lovely set of tunes followed by some well researched bread related poetry and songs 🙂
And Julian gave us some brilliant tunes as usual on his accordion. It was a lovely afternoon – thanks all for coming
