I'd like regular ancestral cooking emails!

The crust. Is it the best bit? Or is it the place where the juicy topping meets the dough? Or maybe the crispy bottom?! . All of those places on the wholegrain spelt sourdough pizza I make are gooood. . What’s your favourite bit?

My first attempt at making wholegrain spelt sourdough pasta was…shall we say…interesting! Here is the tagliatelle with a courgette, onion and mushroom sauce, topped with nutritional yeast. Those kinda curly ends sticking out are my pasta. . I need a bigger pan, I need to leave the pasta to dry for a few hours before boiling, I need to roll it more thinly. I have hankered after a hand-crank pasta machine for ages and have settled on the reasonably priced Imperia which should arrive soon. I mean, it’s gotta be fun to feed sheets of dough through the rollers while my hubby and little one catch it the other side?! . …this sourdough pasta story is to be continued ;-)
