My Highbury Sourdoughs just out of the oven

Each entrant had to get two of the same loaf to Westminster Cathedral Hall in London by 11am on 17th September.  I made my Highbury Sourdoughs with white, spelt and rye flour, using the Tartine method. I had to get up at 5.30 to get them out of the fridge where they had been fermenting over night. I left them to warm up to room temperature for a couple of hours, then baked one in my oven and the other in my neighbour’s oven. I went off to work and my darling daughter took them in on the tube to central London

Last night was the award ceremony and it was all worth it because I won GOLD in the baked at home category!
