Tom Halifax is a very nice man who lives on a tiny magic island protected by guard otters and some particularly ferocious cattle. He makes delicious bread and, as I have always avoided baking, I thought I'd better pay attention. You have to get close to see the process, as his wee house is filled with dense peat smoke from the fire. How easy he made it look and how delicious this bread was. Using no yeast, it is less bloating than other breads, although this is not the case if you immediately finish the loaf hot from the oven all slavered with a packet of butter and a pot of jam. Tom advises you make two loaves for exactly this reason.
