Rainy day baking
What to do when the rain pours down day after day? Last week I had a bake-in and invited neighbours round for afternoon tea. They came obligingly, decked out in wellingtons and under sturdy umbrellas. A window display in the baker's shop when I was in Yorkshire had old copies of the Bero book, small recipe books that came free with the purchase of Bero flour. I have several of my mother's, dating from the '40's and '50's. I've used these little books since early childhood, although not so much in recent years since, for health reasons, I've moved to fat and flour-free recipes.
