La Chatte Gitane (or The Gypsy Cat) was the name we chose for our cottage in France. We chose it while on the road, moving home, from Ireland to France with 2 dogs and 7 cats in the car.
This blog began its insignificant life as a recipe book for friends and family who would ask me repeatedly for a recipe of this, that and the other.
Since then it has taken many different directions, like gypsies tend to do. Sometimes making a U-turn and revisiting familiar roads and taking a break when necessary.
You'll find recipes here, but also musings about the places we've called home, the gardens that we've established, not always successfully, the homes we've improved and the environments we've lived in. Currently, that is back in Ireland.

Bread, Homemade in Pictures

A little bird told me, that today it is Bread Day. National (as in Belgium) or international, I know not, but I thought I'd share a couple of pictures of bread that I made over the years. 

Rolls and Buns

Bunny Buns, brioche style


And just our day to day loaves

The little bird is Bart Aertgeerts. He is about to open an artisane bakery in Koningshooikt (Belgium).
If he ever gets his website up and running, I'll gladly add a link.

  1. Mmmm, yummie bread. I couldn't do without.

  2. These look wonderfully satisfying!

  3. The baguette looks perfect inside! Haven't baked bread for a while, need to get back into the routine.

  4. Oh lord!!

    It was making bread with you that made me realize I really could keep us in bread without backbreaking effort -- and now I do! I think back to that first loaf at your place quite often.
