JP's Description: Mauro Lovi said he knew some bakers, and would I design a bread loaf for them?
I decided to try it out by baking it myself first, so I made up a wholegrain dough with millet and farro, and using fresh brewers yeast as a raising agent. I then put it in a recently-emptied beer can and let it rise so it started to spill out the top and dribble down the sides. I baked it at 200C for some time (as I'd proceeded to empty other beer cans, I don't remember how long it stayed in the oven). Anyway after it cooled down, I cut away the most of the can to reveal the perfectly baked loaf.
I then sent it off to Mauro. The resulting silence tells me the bakers weren't amused.
