Mairi MacRitchie is in the Highlands and islands meeting skilful home bakers with a passion for food. They share with her the tried and tested recipes for bread and show her that bread can mean so much more than just a simple plain loaf. In this episode, Mairi samples some easy to follow and delicious bread recipes. She tries a crispy, light naan bread, the perfect partner to a curry. Another adventurous baker makes a tasty French fougasse, a type of bread perfect for tearing and being shared around the table. Mairi also makes her own bread recipes from her kitchen in Uist, including a classic Irish soda bread with a twist - she adds wholegrain mustard and strong cheddar cheese. She also bakes deliciously sweet and spiced Chelsea buns bursting with raisins and sultanas, and topped with a honey glaze.
