I usually make bread once a week. Today’s bread was wholegrain. I haven’t manually kneaded dough for several years now - bread machines are great! The aroma of freshly baked bread rates as one of the most wonderful fragrances in the world.

The fluorescent light used helped to give the bread a warm golden colour.

[With thanks to Mrs. Mavis Wainman MBE of Kemnay, Aberdeenshire, for initiating me into the delights of home-baked bread nearly, ahem, 3 decades ago].
