I really don't like to clean which isn't a good thing when I love to cook.
I do the basics all the time but my oven very rarely, one because I hate the fumes from oven cleaners and two, it requires you to turn off your oven...
So when the lovely people from Oven Express offered to clean it for me I was overjoyed.
And they use eco-friendly non harmful-methods which mean it doesn't smell and you can use your oven straight away- how good is that?!
So I've included a few before and after shots of my oven.
So what to cook in my sparkling oven - well I decided to cook my favourite thing to bake - bread.
Miss E recently did another holiday class at Brasserie Bread and came home with some delicious roasted vegetable focaccia.
It was an absolute winner and will be baked many times to come.
The recipe/method for the bread can be found at Crunchy Tiger.
If you have not baked bread at home I really encourage you to try.
So simple - yeast, flour, oil, water, salt.
Knead for two minutes, rest for two minutes. Repeat about five or six times.
You then rest the dough in the fridge.
Miss E shaped the dough for me with oiled fingers and then topped with the roasted vegetables.
After proving into the oven it goes.
Its quite exciting to be able to see through my oven door ;)
I am still amazed at my clean and beautiful oven.
