חנית, הלחם יפיפה. ואני חולקת עליך...ראיתי את התמונה שאליה את מפנה בהסבר, הלחם שלך הרבה יותר יפה.

ממש זר שיבולים...יכול להיות מוצלח לשולחן שבועות (-:

תודה על ההסברים והתמונות המפרטות..הלחם הזה באמת יפיפה!

Papilles et Pupilles said...

I'd ever seen this bread on recipe books but I'd never seen somebody bake it ! It's amazing ! Bravo !

Chanita Harel חני הראל said...

מרילין יקירתי
תודה רבה, רבה על המחמאות, את משמחת אותי
גם אני הופתעתי מהלחם הזה, הן מדרך ההכנה והן מהתוצאה.אני מתכוונת להגיש אותו יחד עם עוד עוגות לחגיגת ברית משפחתית וקרובה , נראה אם הלחם יהיה לתצוגה או שינסו לאכול ממנו.. בינתיים הוא נח בפריזר.תודה :-)
