What better to make an artistic bread basket than by making the entire basket and its contents out of bread! In the post A Year Of Breadmaking (and across other entries as well), I’ve mentioned the wonders Chef Meg Victorino has on my kitchen endeavors — and how she continues to personally guide and walk me through my baking (mis)adventures by diagnosing my recipes and photos
When I mentioned my ambitious attempts to unite people of all cultures through a bread campaign called, KNEAD LOVE | Break Bread Around The World, she volunteered to share her own documentation with us. Meg, who was already working in the kitchen of a premier restaurant in Manila. cross-trained in pastry, taking higher studies and an apprenticeship in Calabria, Italy.
In the next couple of days/weeks, I will be posting her photos in this blog. Today, let me share with you her bread-making skills taken to a different level altogether: artful bread sculpture.
I asked her blatantly, “Are these breads made to just look pretty or do they even taste good?”
To which she replied, “It’s good!”
