FOWC with Fandango — Dough

With the Covid 19 Lock down here in South Africa we are having a lot of time on our hands

Different kinds of doughs for bread, pizza’s, cookies and even gnocchi have been made here in our kitchen!!

Dough is a thick, malleable, sometimes elastic paste made out of any grains, leguminous or chestnut crops. Dough is typically made by mixing flour with a small amount of water and/or other liquid, and sometimes includes yeast or other leavening agents as well as other ingredients such as various fats or flavorings.

FOWC with Fandango — Stairs

Stairs or steps?

In perhaps their most basic uses, stairs and steps share a single meaning. Both refer to a series of steps—those “structures consisting of a riser and a tread,” as the definition of step puts it. … When they’re outside, they’re more often called ‘steps‘ than they are called ‘stairs. Now is Afrikaans, my home language we call steps and stairs “Trappe”.  Therefor I am posting photos of steps.

One Word Photo Challenge: Pastry

Pastry is a dough of flour, water and shortening (solid fats, including butter) that may be savoury or sweetened. Sweetened pastries are often described as bakers’ confectionery. The word “pastries” suggests many kinds of baked products made from ingredients such as flour, sugar, milk, butter, shortening, baking powder, and eggs. Small tarts and other sweet baked products are called pastries. The French word pâtisserie is also used in English (with or without the accent) for the same foods. Common pastry dishes include pies, tarts, quiches and pasties.Puff Pastry
