Waving Lady Bread

Spelt flour made at the Letheringsett Watermill in Holt Norfolk. The flour bakes better bread and feels better that its a local product that I am happy to support.
Just a few weeks ago the government dropped the bread weights, which were traditionally put in place to stop bakers cheating us of flour and making them smaller and smaller. The law made bread look rectangular for a very long time. Now bread can be any shape, weight and size.
I had no idea that the bread law even existed and have always made my bread sculptural as it is a great opportunity to be creative with the dough.
When I was a child I use to make dough fake food for my dolls house. The dough consists of salt and flour.
