Very happy with the service from @widefitshoes A pair of shoes were not up to scratch -- not their fault at all -- and they agreed to send out a replacement with no argument. That is how it should be. If you need wider fittings, I highly recommend, and their foot-measuring chart makes it easy.

No idea where I found this, but I liked it enough to write it down. If you know the origin, please let me know.

I am amazed and saddened by the number of beginner bakers I see in forums saying that their bread tasted fantastic but didn't rise enough, or didn't have giant holes, or didn't a shiny crust, or whatever.

Just eat it.

Bread porn too has a lot to answer for.

It is extremely regrettable and demoralising that robbers and the élite agree on just one thing-- living in hiding.

I’ve been getting myself in a right old muddle about taste lately. Not music or architecture -- well, not entirely -- but gustatory taste, the taste of food. Of course, we all acknowledge that taste is subjective. 1/6

Chicken Skin Music is truly balm for the soul on an afternoon that feels weird for reasons I cannot put my finger on.
