Weekend Baking Supplement

If, like me, you are a fan of Dan Lepard, artisan baker, you will be running to the newsagents this Saturday (24th November). The Guardian newspaper is giving away a special baking supplement, with over 100 pages of baked goods - enough to satisfy any breadhead!

It includes many brand new recipes which have been especially written, with some can't-live-without master recipes thrown in, plus many variations.

What else will be included in the supplement?
Dan writes:
"that Jill Mead, who photographed two of Gordon Ramsay's bestselling books, spent a week with me photographing the steps and finished things I baked here in my kitchen at home. And there are essays from Ronnie Corbett on his father's life as a baker, Neneh Cherry on home baking, Tom Jaine on oven building, a recipe from River cafe founders Ruth Rogers and Rose Gray, Joanna Blythman on additive-free cakes, a very affectionate essay from Granta editor Ian Jack on pies and pie-loving, in fact, all the good writing you would expect from the Guardian. Actually, the paper is packed with this kind of writing every day, but never just on baking".

If you don't live in the UK, you can still access the recipes on-line, and a taster of one of the bread recipes can be found at Word of Mouth, where Dan will be doing a Q&A session - you can ask him any baking questions you may have.
