Chocolate Baguette.

Thursday 23rd June 2011

At the end of my Mum’s road there is a little shopping precinct. In this precinct there used to be an old fashioned baker’s. The type that had iced buns & bakewell tarts in the window. Before you could get slices of pizza & jumbo sausage rolls. A real baker’s.
When I was old enough to be given some independence, Mum would ask me to go down to the baker’s to get the bread.

We always had the same thing; a crusty bloomer. It was usually warm a soft. Both ends of the loaf exposed the doughy inners, where it had been separated from the batch.

On the 3 minute walk back to Mum’s I would start to nibble at this bit until I got home. It was so morish that on occasion I had been known to devour a substantial part of the loaf before I handed it over to Mum. 🙂

I always take a chocolate nutella sandwich on Mondays after school for, my son, Zephyrus. He is a stickler for routine and berates me if for some reason I take a cheese spread sandwich instead.

    Good bread is so important and sometimes difficult to procure. I use Joy of Cooking French Bread recipe to bake it for guests on a stone in the oven. Love the story of your buying the bread and nibbling it on the way home.

    Morish? I’m not sure what that means….

    I do love reading your blog and learning all of these fun new vocabulary words (and food combinations) – it’s quite fun for me. 🙂

    As for the Monday routine: Every Monday needs some chocolate, right? 😉

    • Morish or sometimes spelt moreish, is the desire for more. Normally used for food.

      Some of Zephy’s classmates are given a piece of baguette with a chocolate bar shoved inside. I love the idea of soft baguette with cold brittle chocolate. Yum. 😉

  3. Oh wow! Can’t have Nutella in the house very often or I’ll end up eating it by the spoonful. That just causes problems “all around”.
