Wealden Times visited The Crown in Hastings where the floury magic happens on a daily basis, picked up a few age-old skills and came away with a couple of recipes Sat on a rooftop terrace drinking flat whites, we talk bread. Think beyond the eternally identical white-sliced blocks in plastic packaging. This is bread in all its glory. Hand-crafted, kneaded to perfection, proved, slashed, baked and savoured. These careful hand-crafting hands belong to Emmanuel Hadjiandreou, or Emmanuel The Baker as I now like to call him. 151
