Bread week is Trevor's favourite, he bakes all the bread in our household, he's my dashing king of bread.
I can do bread but it just doesn't have that final polished finish that Trevor seems to get, my bread always looks very homemade. It tastes fine but it's never quite as good as Trevor's, may be he just has natural flair for bread.
He developed his bread skills when we were living in Japan. The Japanese bread was very sweet which was no good for savoury sandwiches, simple breakfast toast or anything except bread and and jam really. So Trevor started making his own bread and filling both our freezers with his wonderful handmade rolls. He still makes as giant batch of rolls every two weeks and fills them with all kind of delights to take to work for his lunch.
When you've got your own in house master baker there isn't much need to be well versed in bread techniques but I wanted to see if I could pick up a pointer or two from Trevor to improve my own bread. I had him watch me bake my sesame and poppy seed crown and critique it Paul Hollywood style. The inspiration for this bread roll ring came from a Marks and Spencer loaf.
