Heard the one about the barrister, the charity CEO and the tree surgeon?
Since Albert Smith let slip he had done a course with me on the Food Programme we’ve had hundreds of new readers hitting the blog. Some of you won’t be familiar with Bethesdabakin’ the annual baking weekend we started in 2007. This is based on bakers of all standards getting together to bake, share ideas and skills with no charge apart from shared costs. The eighth one is coming up at the end of May down at Rick & Maggie’s Mairs Bake House in South West Wales http://bethesdabakinatmairs2014.wordpress.com/ which has the added attraction of a monster Alan Scott wood-fired oven. And there are still a few places left!!
Anyway some of us can’t wait that long so I’ve organised a bijoux baking weekend at Gert’s famous B&B in Caernafon where the barrister (he’s the one who makes the coffee), the charity CEO and the tree surgeon plus a few others of us will be assembling this very night. It’s so posh we even have our food cooked for us and sleep in comfortable beds (four poster of course).
Full report to follow – if it’s successful there may be more.

unfortunately it’s a bit too far from Melbourne…
It’s ten miles closer than Bethesda – or ten miles further away I suppose depending on which way round the globe you travel …
Very disappointed I can’t make it as I have to work over the weekend but it means I can meet Carl Legge (who briefly attended one of the Bethesdabakin events) at the Edible Garden Show at Alexandra Palace where he is launching his new Permaculture.book.
We can only speculate on which bike you would have brought …
Ben you will be missed. I’m pleased to say I am one of the lucky ones going along later today! Should be fun!
It would have been appropriate to have chosen a bike fitted with miche gearing (that’s an Italian cycle components manufacturer and not a large round loaf of bread which might not work as well).
Don’t worry, Ben, this is a one-off experiment so you retain your unique 100% attendance record at Bethesdabakin’.
I’m sure it’ll be a gas and another model for fine baking with fine bakers! We’ll be saying ‘hello’ to Amsterdam for Gert…
Gutted not to be there, esp now that you’re a nationally renowned microbakin guru, Mick! Hope you all have a great time. Well, I know you will, so no hoping required!
Thank you all. Live report coming soon.
