Two of the breads featured in our ‘Bread to impress’ course:
The twists are very similar to cheese pastry twists but made with dough so slightly less rich. There were flavoured with garlic, rosemary and cheese and taste as good as they look. I find the older the cheese the better or some strong blue gives a really strong flavour.
The Bialy are Polish and similar to a bagel but are not boiled first and the central hole is filled with caramelised onion in this case. I should have made the onion mixture a little more jam like so it didn’t spill out of the hole as they rose but a really good flavour. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bialy
