‘With bread all sorrows are less’

Those are the words of Sancho Panza speaking to Dapple, his ass, in Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes.

Sancho Panza was a man after my own heart. By now, you’ve probably discovered that I find it difficult to steer clear of carbs. So, May is dedicated to bread in a variety of shapes and forms.

As we turn our back on April and its indulgent offerings, we look to a calmer but equally interesting May.

Come along on this journey and discover new ways to appease your palate when nothing but bread will do.

Who doesn't love baguettes?

Decisions, decisions!

2. Focaccia with sea salt
