I thought that the scoring for Gail was very harsh! I am looking forward to trying this bread recipe - it looks yummy.

Loved Gail's whole menu and will try it all, Gail put in a lot of effort and time and her score did not reflect this wonderful menu. I have always wanted to do homemade bread and this looks great. Well done Gail.

I too loved Gail's menu and thought that they scored her too low for all her effort, especially after a certain Mexican woman's meal.

BTW what is or where can i buy French butter?
