what? bread?

a blog about making bread at home

Dan Lepard

Over the years I’ve tried quite a few of Dan Lepard’s recipes, from the Guardian newspaper, from his books ‘Short and Sweet’ and ‘The handmade loaf’. Here are links to blogs I wrote about some of them.

I am slightly distressed that Dan will no longer be writing for the Guardian, but also hopeful that he’ll be able to bring us more great recipes some other way.
