Omri and I have now developed a taste for a nightly cheese course (good thing I walk 5 miles a day!) – and what better to accompany cheese than fresh bread or baguette! While strolling down the aisles of Waitrose and Tesco, two of our local supermarkets, I discovered a TON of awesome baking ingredients, including multitudes of flours and bread mixes!

Thanks to the mix, the bread is super easy to make!

The “strong” flour is basically flour with extra gluten added (sorry GF friends) that helps to bind the bread mix and water together. All you need to do is kneed the water and mix together in a ball, let it rise, and bam, there you have your fresh bread!

Is it better than a baguette from a bakery? Debatable, but it’s fun and easy to make and makes the whole house smell really yummy!
