Companion Romano cheese and celery

Johnny's picture

I've been meaning to have a go at Graham's Romano-Celery Sourdough ever since I saw those scrumscious photos and he posted his method. I was intrigued to see how the celery would come out in the final loaf.

I used a 60/40 mix of bakers flour with wholemeal to give a little more texture and just sprinkled a little grated pecorino romano for that sharp tang, being careful not to over do it.


I was very happy with the results and surprisingly the celery bits still had a little bit of crunch. I could have added a bit more cheese as I could hardly taste it in the final bread and would have liked a bit more of that tangy, sharp flavour to come through.

Over all a very nice combination of flavours. Thanks Graham for sharing your method. I'd love to try your butternut pumpkin bread as well - those pictures of the roasted pumpkins look so yummy. Any chance of posting your method with the pumpkin, if it doesn't give away all your trade secrets?

cheers johnny

Wow, been a while since I visited here.  This recipe looks fantastic.  Must give it a go.  It's made me want to have a hunt through and see what everyone's up to.

Hi all!
