Gill & Jay’s

Last weekend a few of us baked again at Gill & Jay’s in Trefriw. That’s where the challah was born. Unbeknownst to me, that Marcus Row videoed me shaping the challah, getting into a hopeless mess and having to start again. Well, it was a first attempt at a two strand braid:

Here’s Joe showing you how shaping should be done (with a bit of a battle with the table cloth):

Marcus does have his good points. Like his Black Forest Gateaux for instance:
