Breaaaad and honey...pardon me, I meant to say warm, toasted bread and honey.
Breaaaad, let me say it again so you can understand how I really feel about breaaaad.
My love affair with bread, or I should correct myself and say toasted bread, is as deep as my affection for honey. Please do not tell this to my bees, it may hurt their feelings. As ancient as honey, wine or olive oil there’s nothing more comforting than a slice of warm toast with honey and it must be primed with butter. It is my food of choice when I have a tummy ache or need a side kick for tea. It is only a simple slice of bread that you really want when you find yourself standing around in the kitchen looking for something to eat - you know what I’m talking about. Bread is easy and fills you up and the perfect carrier to deliver sweet honey, cheese or anything else you can spread on it. There are as many types of bread as there are honeys and personally I look for the dark crusty breads with lots of nooks and crannies for my honey to fill. It oozes out of those holes with every satisfying chew. Here are my favorite ways to eat bread with honey...of course, cheese is involved.
Sliced bread with ricotta cheese, blackberries, pignoli nuts, fresh mint, lemon zest and honey in the comb.
Sliced toast with chunky peanut butter, sliced bananas, honey in the comb sprinkled with bee pollen.
Sliced baguette, with goat cheese and sliced strawberries and micro-greens.
