At least we can feast our eyes on this… Sent in by Heinz Imhof. It was taken last Friday at the Le Pain Quotidien bakery in Polanco, Mexico City. Thanks Heinz.

While I’m at it, here are a couple more gorgeous loaves created by Mikal in New Mexico.

Mikal the Bread Artist

He used a scissors to cut small “lips” in the proofed dough. 8 snips. 3 on top and 5 around the middle. Then a medium thick wash of corn starch. Then sprinkled on hemp seeds, sesame seeds, golden flax meal, wheat bran and then sift on oat flour until the loaf is coated.
