It’s one of my favorite areas of Spain.
Sitting on the northern border of Portugal it has a long, beautiful, coastline.
It was a considered to be the end of the world by the ancient Romans, and is the final destination of the famed pilgrim route ‘Camino de Santiago’.
It also has great food….. Like the Pan Gallego, the famous Galician bread with a topknot.
Lovers of food often rave about the bread in France. They haven’t eaten the bread in Spain.
The history is different, the flour is different, and the bread is different.
Cathy, of Bread Experience, and our host kitchen for the month, says this is ‘a naturally leavened, high hydration Spanish Bread made with a hint of rye and whole wheat flours’.
It sounds a bit challenging, but the Babes say it’s easy and definitely one they will be doing again.
I have eaten Pan Gallego in Galicia. It’s wonderful.
Although (for obvious reasons) I haven’t tasted the Babes Pan, it looks equally wonderful.
If you want to try it yourself go to Bread Experience for the recipe and detailed instructions on how to do it. Plus you’ll find all the details of baking along this month.
Not the norm – the Babes were (slightly) better at following the recipe this month. Check them out….
That’s it for May
As always –
Stay Safe, Healthy & Hopeful.
