I have the book and have been eyeing a bunch of the recipes - but I give up because I can't get anything close enough to what the recipes call for.
I have the TFL book as well and those recipes are like unobtanium status. Cheese and bread are incidentally some of the biggest sore points here in Korea; live cultures were illegal for import until like 1997 (true story) so cheese is literally brand new and limited (and expensive, duh) here and bread is awful. I have like the only decent bakery in this country about 150 ft in front of my building, but it's always sold out because I don't get out of bed til 4.
My girlfriend goes down there and gets bread and so the bread in that pic is two leftover slices from a nice milk bread loaf we froze.
