“Erm… that’s a sweet yeasted bread with two fillings, and takes two days to make. It’s probably not a good place to start if you’ve never baked before.”

We settled on baking this loaf of lemon blueberry bread instead.

Toxo Bread, formerly known as Deli-Style Rye

Welcome to my blog! I’m a microbiology and molecular genetics graduate student who also happens to like cooking food. Studying cell biology and molecular parasitology is fun but you can’t eat your experiments after you’re finished, unlike cooking (well, most of what I make anyway). The posts may not always be pretty but I’m happy to share my culinary adventures with you, and hope you will enjoy reading about them.
