When scoring bread, bakers use a small double-sided kitchen blade called a lame (pronounced lahm) to make precise, strategic cuts across the dough’s surface. These slashes allow moisture to escape and give the finished loaf that sought-after complex crust. The cutting process is mesmerizing to watch, and the post-bake result is even more so. What enters the oven as raw shaped bread with small gashes emerges as a fully formed loaf with crispy ridges and arcs in earthen hues of gold and brown. Continue reading »

The Walking Bread is an art series depicting scenes from a certain similar sounding TV show (which itself returns on the 9th of February), only with the twist that all the characters are made out of bread. That’s right.. Bread!! A mixture of parody and downright creativity bring to life a miniature world in a way that captures the imagination. A moody zombie bread slice – scoops jam from the disembowelled body of another bread character in one scene.
Mark Nathan Willetts is the artist behind the series. He came up with the idea after jotting down some wordplay ideas for illustrations, and then decided with a moment of Eureka to take it a step further. Each of the characters were cut from a single slice of bread to make it seem as if they had just climbed straight out of a loaf. To further embellish the scenes, a range of buffet related items were used such as: cocktails sticks, BBQ grill etc. Finally lighting design was used to capture a comic book feel reminiscent of the Walking Dead comic book covers.
There are fourteen pictures covering 10 unique and fun scenes. Just be careful because this bread bites back! Continue reading »
