I love to put my hands in gooey mixtures quite a lot, and this weekend is what I did!! I first started bu making some brioches for our breakfast. The dough for brioche is always a hard kneading wirk because of the egg and butter the dough gets really really gooey and it takes a good 30-40min of string kneading to obtain the silky soft and smooth dough expected. I could use a robot you could tell me, but kneading is really part of the fun for me, if not most with eating together the final product. The result: 6 little brioches was really great, all warm out of the oven for breakfast. And when they we finished for tea time, I regretted not to have made more...

The other gooey mixture I worked with this weekend was clay for ceramics. After our experience of making pottery in Kurashiki, we wanted to do some more, and finally by chance the other day at some event in Isumi we found Ezonoco a potter which work I like very much and who is also having some classes at her workshop. So we finally went there and spent the afternoon with hands in the clay and shaping our creations. It was tough work but it was great to work side by side and tease each other and I can’t wait to see the results after they will be out of the oven in a few weeks and we can work on them again. I also thought about the so many things I want to make and that it may finally happen! It makes me really happy!
