Recipe For Sun Dried Tomato And Rosemary Twist Bread

Head straight on to the recipe for Sun Dried Tomato And Rosemary Twist Bread ♥

I have taken the beautiful Challah recipe from Jamie Geller’s Joy of Kosher and used it to make my sun dried tomato and rosemary twist bread. The idea for the twist bread came from watching the very good looking Paul Hollywood on television.

I can vaguely remember as a child in nursery school having pieces of paper pinned to my back for my mother to read. I’m sure these included notices of school functions, letters about my behaviour and invitations to parties. I would have had no idea about the invitations and until I was old enough to decide about whether or not I would go to a party, my mother would have replied for me. I don’t know when I reached the age of party consent but I know it was before I hit my teens. Since then my mom has not had to tell anyone if I’m going to a party or not. I know someone who still in their 50’s needs her mother to make her excuses. It eventually got to a point where the reasons for not showing up did not count anymore and I realized that extending invitations was just not worth it. I did not want to sit around a table and break bread with someone who didn’t actually want to be with me. The first time I made this Sun Dried Tomato And Rosemary loaf was to share with friends at the Christmas table. When making it the second time the twisting action was easier and the result was somewhat prettier.

  1. Nowadays we have a school communicator that puts notes up on a virtual notice board for parents. I suspect it quells many an excuse. How pretty this bread is Tandy.

  6. A clever adaptation. I’ve not heard of note pinning so this is a whole new world that I must investigate. I love reading blogs where you can learn about a new tradition or practice!

  9. I have read about notes being pinned but never had it done. They used to give them to us to hand to our parents. I guess pinning them made sure that they were seen! 😀 What a lovely sounding bread Tandy!

  19. This is my kind of bread Tandy! Rosemary is just my favorite seasoning….I grow a million plants of it because I love the flavor so much. But that sun-dried tomato oozing out the middle looks equally scrumptious =) Have a great weekend.
