These and the loaves then went in to the ovens and while they were baking 6 more volunteers tried their hand at bread plaits, much to the amusement of the audience. Their efforts may have owed more to the Generation Game than to Craft Bakery, especially when it came to dipping the finished plaits into a mountain of poppy seed, but they did all eventually make it into the oven, together with a batch of bread knots embellished with ground sweetcorn which our hosts somehow produced while keeping up a running commentary on proceedings. While these were all baking, we were treated to an excellent buffet lunch, following which we were able to inspect, and take home, all the finished products. Safely back in Andover by 14:00 all agreed that it had been a fascinating, educational and enjoyable outing.
