  • Give me the site of that room above the water. wow.

  • Brilliant

  • Where can I find the recipe for the breads shown on tonights programme in Norway please?

    • Hi Jack,

      here's a link for the recipes featured:

      You wouldn't by any chance know the name of that bakery in Oslo where they had that amazing sour dough bread, do you?



      • you add still water to flour (any) and leave it for at least 12 hours after stirring it well. It will grow in volume so care to put it into a big enough jar (plastic or glass), cover but leave plenty of fresh air to go through.

        Then pour on table and add your ingredients ( mushrooms porcini and nuts or dried tomatoes and ham or else) Fold in 4, leave in big jar for at least an hour.

        Pour olive oil onto table then pour on it the dough and "dirt" it with the oil.

        The oven should be well hot (maximum heat) when you put the bread in, then turn it down to 200 degrees.

        Take it out only when the bread is well colored brown . Leave it to cool.

        Let me know hoe it is. I am doing mine now.

        Ciao, Anna

    Please could you e-mail me the sourdough recipe too?


  • It is indeed the Apent Bakeri in Oslo. I emailed them and they are going to put the recipe on their web site as well as asking the BBC if they can put it on the HB web page. The Apent site is in Norwegian but Google translate sorts that out.

  • Just checked their website - there aren't any recipes, so I suppose one just have to buy the book - if one can read Norwegian...

  • To Simon and David, i have seen all your photos on this website and the both of you are epic and awesome, i loved everyone of your photos. they are all my favourites good luck lads on your new series if you are making anyone fabulous ones, take care and all the best to you both and your wives as well.

  • Hi the lovely bakers in Oslo have put the sourdough recipe on their website:

  • That cheese cake looked fantastic, love the look of Brussels

  • Why is there no 'DVD' of the Bakaton tour???

  • Watched the programme last night. Was it The Bakery Lom or something, the one that had the window right by that water flowing past?. It was sooo Beautiful, wish i could work there!!, or live there even better!!!.

  • Has anyone found the recipe for the sour dough bread from apent bakery PLEASE
