  • Tribute to the English bakery

    I say it once more ,these English Pathé reports are the greatest testimonies to an era ,that the world tvs have ever realised.
    Filmed in vivid 35mm in color , with talented operators ,they make my day every time.

    And this very one gave me an irrepressible desire for an Apfelstrudel.

    That rug really tied the room together

      There has been a revival of artisan baking in the UK as opposed to the steam cooked rubbish one gets in the supermarkets. The best is as tasty as anything you'll get in France albeit different in texture and taste. Problem with both French and British artisan bread is that it doesn't keep and needs to be eaten not long after baking.

          There is still the tradition of buying bread every day in France and Belgium, and it is better than the plastic bread we get here.

          OTOH, where Britain has always shined is in its savoury pastry items - Various pies (eg Scotch, Pork, Steak & Onion), Cornish Pasty etc etc, as long as they are made by a local source.

            I'm guessing that Frenchmen -- and women -- are more liable to commute via public transportation than Britons: they can stop off either before or after boarding their train and buy fresh goodies for dinner. It's certainly one of the advantages of living and working in a place like NYC, where we can get fresh vittles from local shops on a daily basis. I live within walking distance of one of the few free-standing butchers still in business -- just like A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, but in a much nicer neighborhood. They're expensive as hell, but they're worth it.

              We have a bread maker which gave us fresh bread every day. Used it for six months but now somewhere in the garage. Buying a bigger house so may be able to use it again...

                  The Sicilian kids on my block used to raid the local Italian bakery for fresh bread. They scooped out the dough and left the crusts. Never understood that . . . .

                    ... they're Sicilian, they were making a point and leaving a message.
