Imagine the delectable aroma of bread wafting through the kitchen as your home-made loaf bakes in the oven. The satisfying crunch as your knife cuts through the crisp crust to the light, fluffy crumb beneath. Maybe you're going to toast a slice and slather it in butter; or top it with marmalade or jam; maybe you'll make a doorstop bacon sandwich or dunk a chunk in soup. Sounds lovely, doesn't it?
