MORE ON BREAD
For those of you who read my musings of yesterday I know that I should not of blasphemed so yesterday, as, of course all armchair bakers know, there is only true goddess of baking and that is Mary...however I do not have the teachings of Mary, but Delia was of course a prodigy of the great Mary.
I did forget to mention yesterday, that before you out the loaf tin the oven, you must go and stand in the corner with a damp tea towel over your head for 30-40 minutes if you are somewhere hot, or one hour if you are at room temperature, and when you come back you will find that your dough has risen as if by some minor miracle...then you can put it in the oven. By the way, incase you were wondering the great Delia, did not mention anything about 'kneading the dough' merely sating 'now transfer your dough to the tin by stretching it out to and oblong and folding one edge into the centre and the other edge over that'... I didn't really understand all that...perhaps I am not a true believer...but what is the point of making bread if you cannot knead the dough...after all that is why we make bread, kneading the dough is therapy for the soul...and i believe it to be necessary for stretching the molecules of your mind and that of the dough....all this leads me to believe that Goddess Delia may not be human at all, and not mortal but a true God...anyway she is so rich she does not need the dough... So Mr Hovis why did you become a Baker...I needed the dough...kneaded, needed, play on words you see...oh never mind
