Sorry... I no longer have the chart for this because of a computer crash Sad
It should be easy enough to make a chart with Excel/Illustrator/graph paper from this picture, though.

And the secret to shuny, golden bread is to brush with egg once you shape the dough. Let it soak in and then brush again just before baking. Shiny and tasty without a super thick crust.
3  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Herby onion bread on: March 09, 2014 11:02:00 PM
This stuff is yummy!

1 packet dried yeast (I think they're 7 grams each)
2 cups plain flour
3/4 cup warm water
1 tsp sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups grated tasty cheese (or less than this with a little parmesan on top)
6 tablespoons of chopped herbs. I use all flat leaf parsley but basil would work as well. Olives maybe too)
1 egg
Half a Spanish onion, sliced finely and soaked in lemon juice for an hour. Skip the soaking if you like a sharper onion flavour.
2 tbsp olive oil
Milk or egg wash

Put one cup of flour, the water, sugar and yeast into a bowl. Mix to a thick paste and leave (covered with cling film) for 30 mins. It will go fluffy.

Add the other cup of flour, cheese, salt, herbs, onion, egg and oil to the paste and stir. I do this step in a mixer with the dough hooks on. You could knead by hand. It takes about 10 minutes to knead, adding a little flour when it becomes sticky.

Put the dough in an oiled bowl and leave for 15 minutes covered in cling wrap. Dough should rise and double. Punch it down and knead lightly.

Shape the dough however you like. I braid it like a round challah, but you could do a loaf, pull-apart balls or plait it. Cover with wrap and leave for 10 minutes.

Brush with egg or milk wash (parmesan if you like) and bake for ~30 minutes at 190oC fan forced. A little longer if you don't have the fan. It should sound hollow when tapped.

Eat warm or cold - just keep away from hungry hands who tend to burn themselves on the hot loaf.  Cheesy

This is my challah baked at the same time. One of the three is a bit misshapen  Grin

And everything uncooked.

yum yum yum. Not too heavy but looks very satisfying!

It's called a springform tin and you can buy them from pretty much any kitchenware shop.

Chilled cheesecake is often less firm than baked cheesecake. Unless it was actually runny, that's probably just normal.

Of course he can fly! Why would anyone question that? Smiley
Lovely. Suitably silly, which is a wonderful thing!

Naw thanks Smiley

I've not actually looked into prints. I have trouble photographing the work because it's so big and also glossy (any ideas!!?? I don't have a SLR camera...). I do have the Illustrator files, but they're nowhere near as interesting as the actual finished work. I have thought about postcards just to put out there.

Here's some stuff for my next show! It's called the Teacher Artmaker Project and is for secondary teachers who are also artists making art about their experience. We look at the tension of being both a teacher and an artmaker as well as the pressure put on art teachers to continue making art when other teachers may not be expected to practice their discipline. Oh, and how being a teacher working with teenage artists impacts our work. It's quite fun!

These are about 1m high and made from original single-use stencils. The original images were made in Illustrator. I glued newspaper to MDF board and then sprayed over the top. It gave them a slightly imperfect paste up look.

I'm nervous about putting them on show, though. I've really put a lot of honesty into the descriptions for the catalogue and I feel so vulnerable having myself out there!

Naw... The balloon was a scene from a dream I had and I wanted to get it down visually rather than attempt to describe it to you! If I'd know it was going on display I'd have lined the balloon to make it pretty.

Seeuudee's journal is pretty interesting as well. I've photographed it and will put them up this afternoon when I get home.  Grin

I'm probably sitting this year out as well, but I can't wait to meet the 2012 sketchbooks in November. I still want to follow this thread along though Smiley
