Seeni Sambol buns for Sourdough Secrets Demo

I had a wonderful time at Ewhurst Green, talking with a bunch of enthusiastic bakers about my experiences with sourdough.  The Cider and Apple Sourdough was a great success and one of the things that particularly pleased me was my Seeni Sambol bun.

I was at Sri Lanka’s only motorway service station when I tried these for the first time – a thick and very spicy onion relish inside an enriched bread dough.  Very tangy – a really tasty little treat!  Traditionally served with a cup of tea for breakfast or afternoon snack and in this distinctive triangular shape.

Thanks to Glenys Griffiths for organising the event and to everyone who came.  Only a few Sourdough Ginger Cookies left on the plate!

Many thanks to the amazing Glenys Griffiths for inviting me to do my bread demonstration at the Arthur Herdman Pavilion in Ewhurst Green.  A wonderful venue and a marvelously appreciative audience.

As you can see from the audience, there is a direct correlation between an interest in bread and gorgeousness!
