Bread- two ways

I had plans to make alternative breads to my usual white so on a trip to Waitrose in search of polenta (how difficult is it to find potenta?!) I was in awe of their selection of flours.

As I left the supermarket, with a basket weighed down, my plans for a Sunday afternoon baking were sorted.
