I don’t eat a great deal of bread, but when I do I like good bread and I especially like good toast which is how I eat most of my bread. Every morning I like to enjoy a really nice slice of toast and to me that means a really well flavoured sourdough bread.
For this I visit the Bath Farmers Market that is held every Saturday in Green Park Market, a place I pictured earlier in the year (see Day – 4) and go and see an excellent baker called Rob. Rob makes what I would call ‘artisan’ bread, not an expression I like too much as everything seems to be ‘artisan’ this or that these days. But Rob’s bread fits the bill; it is robust, well flavoured and every loaf is different. I have a San Francisco Sourdough and it lasts me a week although I usually have to scrape a bit of mould off before I toast it by the end of the week! It is delicious and I look forward to a fresh loaf every week.
Here is Rob’s stall with his bread.

Following yesterday’s blog posting I spoke to my chicken keeping neighbour and can sadly confirm that he is now my former chicken keeping neighbour. Killed the lot; which is why I don’t like foxes!
