Suntan!!!

After being here the best part of four week I’ve finally got a light suntan – on my burger buns.
burger buns smallDecided to make the perfect burger/frites in the most difficult conditions – crap oven, impossible to get any serious heat into the frying oil. Did pretty well really.

Made brioche buns and green olive and Brebis (sheep’s cheese) brioche loaves in the herb baskets.

I’ve realised why everything tastes biscuity and why the bread has been coming out cakey:

Plus I’ve been using Beure d’Issey in the brioche and the tortilla – they taste lovely but not quite as intended.
