bread anyone?


one of my favorite things to collect are breadboards... and they are sooooo rare that to find one is like finding a pearl in an oyster or gold in a mine... they are priceless.
these lovelies are on their way from europe and i just can't wait to receive them...
i promise not to keep them all and put a few in red ticking for sale...

I was just think about how I used to make homemade yeast bread. Wouldn't allow my mother to buy me a bread machine because I loved to knead it, let it rise, etc. La Brea makes a wonderful whole grain, though, so I've gotten lazy. Wooden bread boards are so great for entertaining...and you can move them as the crowd moves. Trish

and bread?? oh! love bread, love breadboards...I just made 3 loaves of the real thing french baguettes, they turned out great...Bernard Clayton's The Breads of France is the BEST bread book ever....now where'd I put that butter?

I LOVE my bread board. I use it for so many things. I got it in AIx many years ago and it has a color that is so rich and wonderful.

I also have a love of bread boards. I collect them, I have them in all sizes ranging from very very small to a large one that fits over my 6 burner stove.
I mostly collect old ones. I have the same one you have pictured, the one in the very back of the pic

*Girlfriend, do you still have that MIRROR shown below??? If so, can/would you contact me? ...

And boy! Do I wish I still had my wonderful, olllllllddddd, handmade bread board purchased in Switzerland in the early 70's... you'd have LOVED it!!! (Annnnd, it was OLLLLD THEN!!!!). Unfortunately, the "MOVERS"~ THIS particular "group" anyway~ had "better taste" than most, & took some of "the really BEST stuff that I just couldn't REPLACE!!)...

Plz, LET me know, ok? I'd lovvvvve to purchase that mirror if at all possible

Warmest blessings,
