AN ARTISAN bakery, where dough is hand-made and hand-shaped, has given rise to a new offering at Mad Dog Deli in Stanwell Park.
The Mill at the Dog is run by self-taught breadmaker Tara Mills (above) whose passion for bread has French people exclaiming that her baguettes are the closest they’ve tasted to the real thing.
Ms Mills, originally from the UK, uses traditional bread-making techniques and tools, including the couche: a linen-proving cloth which absorbs excess moisture from the shaped dough before baking.
She also uses the lame, which is a double-edged razor blade used to score the tops of baguettes and batards.
