“This homemade bread along with French bread from our local supermarket (baked fresh daily) is a favourite everywhere it goes. I have opted to change the recipe and used a bread machine, this can be made with a mixer the traditional way, the bread machine just saves time and work for the mixing, rising process. This is an Emeril Lagasse classic !!”
