    Stuff to Bring Continued… 

    I see various enquiries buried in the original post.  So I’ll start a new post here.

    Allison asked about the availability of a griddle

    Phil asked about bringing bacon

    I was wondering vaguely if you had a muffin tin thing but I think I’ll just chuck mine in the car – still thinking about those pasteis ….

    Would rubber boots be advisable for going to and fro? And this might sound odd, but is there somewhere to hang coats/wet stuff up etc in the barn, an old broom handle that sort of thing?  Love those pics of the construction work by night Joe! I take my hat off to you for all the work you guys are doing.  Brian says he likes stretching pizza dough (hidden talents) so he’ll be up for helping with the pizza.

      Sorry, didnt see these requests.
      I have an 11″ square griddle along with various heavy flat pans.
      Phil bacon would be fine.
      No muffin stuff.
      I presume ‘rubber boots’ are wellies? If so you wont need them for getting here from The Bridge, but they would be a good idea if you wish to take a walk further afield (maybe to walk off to many muffins).
      There will be a ‘cloakroom’ available.

      (If I am a bit slow and these are requests for ‘girdles and rubber boots’ then maybe you have the wrong end of the stick (so to speak). The Dales Dom Do is the weekend after 🙂 )

        Yup wellies is what i meant! Galoshes, waterproofs, all the acoutrements of a traditional bank holiday weekend 🙂

      If anyone is wanting a baking pizza stone, I saw some for sale in Robert Dyas for under £8. Not tried these ones, but mine are from Pampered chef http://www.pamperedchef.co.uk/ordering/category_details.tpc?code=FH&id=9&parentCatId=9&parentId= and even though they are expensive, they are good quality and mine have lasted a while.

    Trying to conjure up a plan to get there… 

    Trying to conjure up a plan to get there with Choc99veg (Allison) to save 2 cars.
    Mick..if you want all of Billingsgate why not divert it at Thirsk, while on it’s way south “frae Peterhid”? Serious about trying, but let’s understand that we need to keep it real! (man!)
    Stargazey Pie anyone?

    Contributing to the Mess 

    I know it’s really hard to impose discipline on the troups in a blog like this so this is as unruly a contribution as anyone elses.

    I’m coming up by train on Friday – supposed to get to Darlington at 13.13 – haven’t checked the buses to Richmond and beyond yet but I’m going to need a lift from somewhere mid afternoon. I’m coming back on Monday – have to be at Darlington also at 13.13 (worrying number of 13s in this).

    On a different subject – Gareth, please bring Billingsgate Market with you or the contents anyway.

    Zeb – where are you up to on einkorn? I have some einkorn grain (you probably gave it to me), some kamut grain and kamut meal, some grunkern grain and meal, and some emmer meal. Do you want me to bring any of this with me? Has Joe built the grain mill yet or should I grind it before I come? Plus, I’m hoping to bring as little as possible on the train, could you get the odd kilo of maize meal when you stop off in Northampton and I’ll pay you for it.

    Finally, I’m assuming there will be starter available so I don’t need to bring any.

    Going to be a great weekend – I quite like mud – it will remind me of North Wales.

    Best wishes to everyone.

    Mick

      Hi Mick
      I’m getting to Darlinton at 9:34 on the Friday and then I’ve got to try anf find the two buses lol, I’m coming back on the Tuesday.
      I’m going to be bringing my starter down,but its only a small amount, but anyone can use it,
      Also got some smoked flour to put in the pizza dough maybe?

      I really can’t wait for this event to happen, really excited,

      Phil 🙂

        Hi Phil
        I should be arriving at Darlington 13.13 and there are buses to Richmond at 13.33 & 14.03 (half hourly service). If you want to meet up my mobile is 07729 151781

      Will have an electric grain mill, Joes building an oven?????????.
      Getting to Richmond (10m away) from Darlingrad is fairly easy. If ‘Little Red Bus’ (Google it) is not able to get you from Richmond to Grinton/Reeth then I will despatch a man to pick you up. BUT I dont really want to make multiple journeys to Richmond so is it possible for the Darlo brigade to be picked up en masse? (From Richmond)

      • bethesdabakers 7:18 am on August 24, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        No Little Red Bus ’til 16.10.

        Do we have a list of people coming from Darlington?

    • Joanna @ Zeb Bakes 9:14 pm on August 23, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      I was thinking more of brioche and chocolate and croissants and baguettes and trying to make a fendu that fendu’ed rather than the pure grain grinding experience, I thought the Dales were supposed to be decadent and butter-rich being near the Lake District and all, don’t they have six meals a day in the Dales, and two of them cake? I do hope so. I’d love to try the grunkern out, what is it? Do you have a formula for it Mick? Usual trade?

      • bethesdabakers 7:23 am on August 24, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Usual trade? I should coco. It’s cocktails this year.

        Grunkern is supposed to be the same as freekeh. I have a recipe for grunkern/carrot bread which I think is one of Nils.

        Swing by New Covent Garden, Gareth, and pick up a carrot would you?

        • birdandbeard 7:48 am on August 24, 2010 Permalink | Reply

          Decadent? You must be thinking of Wensleydale. Lots o money there. All peasant farmers here.
          As for people coming from Darlo, will have a word with Joe on that one, when he surfaces, and let you know.
