Ken Forkish Harvest Bread with Poolish This is the result of the first try at scoring using a lame with a really well balanced handle that fits perfectly into the hand. (Please see more photos of Ken Forkish's Harvest Bread with Poolish)

Of course, we love our homemade lame handle. But this handle made by Lance Ziegler of Burnt Whisker Forge (burntwhiskerforge.com) is really wonderful!

Keeping the blade at about a 45 degree angle and using only the tip of the blade and swift strokes, scoring is easy.

We found the perfect spot to store the lame handle - on the wall between the pizza peel and the abacus. (Sorry, no photo yet....)

Summer Dining in the garden

July 2015

Herbs from our garden, locally grown sugar snap peas from the farmers' market, NFFtT cherries (picked just a few days previously), with oven roasted potatoes, free-range grilled chicken, and Peninsula Ridge Shiraz (Ontario). Life doesn't get much better than this.
