Hmm, now that I come to think about it I'm probably only writing this post because I'm in the middle of a seven day clean eating detox....
More on that later. For now - bread.
There's something so wholesome and nurturing about proper bread. Food for the soul that has been vilified in recent years, partly no doubt because of the array of fake sliced rubbish weighing down our supermarket shelves. Hardly bread at all. Just a soft, tacky sponge that last for 86 weeks. Or thereabouts.
But real bread... Oh how I miss you!
Luckily there are more and more artisan bakers popping up all over the country these days. One such wonderful establishment is The Firehouse Bakery, originating in West Cork and now well established in Delgany, Co. Wicklow.
They are spreading the bread love with their bread school - but they also do incredible pastries, breakfasts, lunches and pizzas in their cafe. (Plus there's a to-die-for deli attached too).
