Regional Shapes

Regional Shapes

Originally uploaded by madbaker66

We wrapped up the Artisan II course on Friday by spending some time creating decorative bread shapes. Each shape represents a regional variety that is made in a specific French town. For example, you’d find Pain d’Aix in Aix.

The bread is a basic country bread with white and whole wheat flour, which tastes pretty good but seemed bland after the olive bread we baked in the morning!

Let’s see if I can pick out the shapes from the picture. Starting at the top left corner and moving clockwise we have:

– Fleur
– Fendu
– Tordu
– Tabatiere
– Auvergnat
– Another Auvergnat with a smaller cap (how did two get in there?!)
– Vivarais
– Charleston (a little lumpy)

In the middle is a Corrone Bordelais (my favorite) and the Pain d’Aix, which looks kind of like a bowtie after some red wine. After white wine it looks like a moustache. Trust me on that.

  1. What you posted made a bunch of sense. But, what about this?
    what if you typed a catchier title? I am not suggesting your content isn’t
    solid, however what if you added something that
    makes people want more? I mean Regional Shapes | Mark Dyck’s Blog is kinda boring.
    You might glance at Yahoo’s front page and watch how they create article titles to get people to click.
    You might try adding a video or a related pic or two to grab readers interested about everything’ve written. Just my opinion, it would
    make your website a little livelier.

  2. Just wish to say your article is as amazing.
