We're just coming down from the thrill of last night's webchat with Yotam Ottolenghi and are now gearing ourselves up for tomorrow morning when Paul Hollywood will join us at Mumsnet HQ for webchat at 9.30am.

Paul Hollywood is Britain's favourite master baker and best known for his appearance with Mary Berry on Great British Bake Off. His latest book is all about bread - how to make it and how to use it. Not only does Paul teach you exactly how to make a variety of breads, but for each one there is a spin-off recipe that shows you how to make a fantastic meal of it.

Join Paul for brunch tomorrow between 9.30 and 10.30 am. If you're unable to make that time, do post a question to this thread in advance.

Well, I'm making Philly Fluff cake on Friday for when dd gets home from skiing on Saturday, but on Sunday I shall have her making pitta bread.

Also, do you think they originally wanted to call the series Paul Hollywood's Buns?

Not that anyone doubted him but, Paul was absolutely right, the sugar listed in the breadmaker recipe book was completely surplus to requirements! Thank you to Paul and MNHQ!

Oooh, nice recipes. Will have to watch out for the series.

Bit of a kneading tip: after mixing in the liquid, just go away and do something else for 10/15 minutes or so. When you come back, it will magically have transformed from a sticky mess into lovely stretchy dough. (Gives the gluten time to soak up the water and start to relax I think). I then give it a quick knead just to make sure there are no lumps left.

Aww he didn't answer my question. Never mind dp's made a starter for sourdough now and it seems to be working?

Wow! My first post on a web chat AND it was with Paul Hollywood AND he answered my q! How fab is that! Though my kitchen aid is pear green not cream sad

Thanks for the recipe Paul :-)!

RachelMumsnet (MNHQ) Thu 14-Feb-13 17:15:49

I am bit disappointed in my KitchenAid

it is not as good as my electric handwhisk


NigellaPleaseComeDineWithMe Thu 14-Feb-13 12:04:12

Have the Kenwood KMix and I think it's more powerfull than the KA, maybe not quite as nice to look at but had a Kenwood for about 20 years so a bit of a fan. Plus their hand mixer KMix is metal and the best one we've found.

Tee2072 Thu 14-Feb-13 11:42:39

Exit I imagine he smells like very expensive after shave. And yeast. grin

Jux Thu 14-Feb-13 11:40:26

Thanks Paul. Will watch out for your show in March; looking forward to a proper how to make bread one, rather than bits and pieces here and there.

Netto, I have ms and so am far too weak and pathetic to knead dough. Like you I get dh to do it, but he isn't always around when I need him to. I have a Kenwood which we got via Amazon, so much cheaper. It's great for kneading.

ExitPursuedByABear Thu 14-Feb-13 11:26:03

CatherinHM - Was he sat next to you? Does he smell of freshly baked bread?

ExitPursuedByABear Thu 14-Feb-13 11:25:17

Oh no - I missed it. Bloody animals.

I am logging on to Amazon to purchase as I type grin

corkythecat Thu 14-Feb-13 11:08:21

I love Paul!
Own up wow many of us have just bought his book?

CatherineHMumsnet (MNHQ) Thu 14-Feb-13 10:50:53

Thanks Paul - that was a brilliant webchat - loads of questions answered!

Fillybuster Thu 14-Feb-13 10:46:24

<sobs> can't believe I missed this...I've had a crush on Paul for years now....

(But I will stroke my cream kitchenaid and think of him next time I use it grin )

LittleAbruzzenBear Thu 14-Feb-13 10:42:01

Thank you for answering my question Paul! [faints]

NigellaPleaseComeDineWithMe Thu 14-Feb-13 10:37:18
