Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 27, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta The Lethbridge Herald Lethbridge, Alberta, Saturday, April Bread has unique quality Bright Donegal tweeds popular Pages 33-40 French bakers bring skill By PHYLLIS HANES Christian Science Monitor WOBURN, MASS. That long, golden, crusty loaf of bread that you see sticking out of the shopping bags of women in Pans and all over France has a special quality, even a mystique about it Most people agree there is no bread in the world to compare with it and nobody seems to be able to produce it except the French themselves This is why Christian Domergue and his company, He de France, decided to bring French bread, along with French bakers, ovens, mixers, equipment, and recipes to the United States At his bakery in suburban Boston, it was easy to see why the French are romantic about their bread First there is that delightful aroma of freshly baked bread then there are the sounds that are also part of the bread making Before the bread goes into the oven a shot of steam makes a whooshing sound providing just the right amount of steam, which is the only way to be sure of a good, brown crust Later when the loaves are done and removed with the long-handled shovel holding five or six loaves, there is such a snapping, popping, and cracking that the French call it "the singing of the bread Not only the ovens were brought over from France, but also the proofing cabinets, the baskets and bowls, and the huge mixing machines Two young French bakers, Serge Djman and Francis Delouche were Authentic French bread in classic shape shaping dough for proofing in one of the shiny new pieces of equipment, with all the buttons and levers labeled with French directions Both young men, around 20 years old, have worked m France as apprentices, since they were 15 They were expert at slashing the loaves in five quick motions of a razor blade This allows a bulge of dough to swell up through the cuts, making decorative patterns on the final loaf The epis, also a long loaf, is cut with scissors, twisted to the right, then the left, with expert handling, just before the oven is given its shot of steam, the door is opened, and the bread is carefully shoveled into the oven, heated to 425 degrees F French bakers no longer knead the dough by hand, Mr Domergue explained, as the huge, heavy-duty, rotary mixers blended flour and water, yeast and salt the only ingredients used in making French bread. "The bread is made with unbleached, unennched flour, with no he said "This means that it will get hard if it isn't eaten when it's freshly baked but you can freeze it, if you happen to have extra loaves The unbleached flour used in lie De France bread has a gluten strength of 8 to 9 per-cent American all-purpose flour is bleached and has a slightly higher gluten content and is also slightly finer m textures He de France bread is sold in New England to a somewhat limited area of Greater Boston right now, in supermarkets, cheese shops, and gourmet shops But there are plans for expansion, including more bakeries throughout the United States So far there are bakeries in Washington, D C Philadelphia, Atlanta, and Massachusetts Different shapes include the baguette, the 24-inch long oval, the batards, the 16-inch oval, boules, round loaves, rolls, and the epis, which is a zigzag loaf, about 16 inches long The crunch comes, for some, not in the delicious crust, but in the cost of this real French loaf It is priced anywhere from 60 to 70 cents depending on how fancy the shop where you find it French baker snips slender shapes of dough into epis loaf Urgently Required!

EVERYONE WELCOME Ireland on world fashion map I I DUBLIN (CP) Fashions are an important source of revenue for Ireland but today they are a far cry from the items early Irish visitors picked up At first, it was the bulky Aran Islands sweaters with their fascinating stitches that caught the eye of intrepid tourists to these rugged islands off the west coast The sweaters still are popular Then Sybil Connolly was dis- covered by the Fashion Group of Philadelphia and persuaded to show a collection in the United States Her bright donegal tweeds and Irish fabrics were an instant success Ireland was on the fashion map from then on Sybil still is in business but almost entirely in haute cout- ure Incidentally, one of her 1957 cocktail dresses in Irish hand- kerchief linen and a 1952 done- gal tweed suit are in the cos- tume collection of the Royal Ontario Museum, part of a collection presented to the museum by the Fashion Group of Toronto In Fitzwilham Square, an- other of Dublin's handsome Georgian squares, lives a comparatively new haute- couture designer, Danish-born Ib Jorgensen and his Irish wife Patricia, a textile designer It has become famous for his hand-painted gowns One is a fantasy bird pattern designed by Patricia, on white heavy cotton suiting Another evening gown in chevron- PREVENTS LEAKING Salted water helps a cracked egg from leaking when being cooked in the shell Herald Family striped black crepe de chine features a gored skirt in two handkerchief points His town clothes are equally elegant He and Patricia also design and make hats Just around the corner is Marv O'Donnell's small salon She specializes in hand-cro- cheted dresses and suits Her crochet work is done in homes in the county She has a large North American clientele Then there's Donald Davies He brought out the tweed shirt dress that gave the Irish look a new dimension Visitors to Dublin can buy the sweaters, shirts and evening wool skirts in shops on Dublin's famous Grafton Street or at Enms- kerry, a few miles away where he and his wife Mary have two small boutiques Here the sweaters range from to and the shirts from to Their factory is at Enmskerry also In the fashion manufacturing field, exports are essential Ireland has too small a population to absorb any large production One firm, Galway Bay, exports 100 per cent and has a flourishing Canadian market "We sell more cashmere pullovers in Vancouver than in any other city in the says Padraig 0 Siocham chairman of the company "The big Canadian stores are much more appreciative of top quality and aren't as worried about price as the US A 0 Siocham claims that Galway Bay is the only firm producing real Aran products Knitters on the middle Aran Island have been knitting for him for some 20 years 0 Siocham is devoted to Aran and the Gaelic language and will go into a harangue about both at the mere mention of an Aran sweater He was the first, really, to introduce these handsome bulky patterned sweaters to the world When we met him recently in his old Dublin home, he was wearing grey tweed pants in the crooked road and honeycomb Aran patterns, topped by a charcoal jacket and tie in Irish freize cloth, made with some of the kemp still in it to give a slight bristle effect It may start a new men's fashion 0 Siocham, who looks like George Bernard Shaw, was a journalist and is a constitutional lawyer He's a founder member of the Irish Menswear Fashion Guild Society surpresses anxiety CALGARY (CP) Modern culture stresses success and smothers anxieties, Rev Richard Bellinger said here The director of counselling service in the division of religion and psychiatry at the Menmnger Foundation in Topeka, Kan was addressing the fifth annual convention of the hospital pastoral care association of Alberta "We have the delusion life goes on forever and gets better and he said after the meeting "The propaganda of our culture says you need not own up to any failures, to any feelings of sadness or sorrow "We deny that you grow old, change and lose your functions We deny the appropriate pleasure and fulfillments that come with aging "We don t celebrate them we celebrate in terms of action, growth all the terms of the young "My idea of good sex education would be to teach middle age and older people what good sex is Anxiety and depression are normal and natural to man, Dr Bolhnger said "Our whole culture is afraid of depression Emphasis on success and technological process denied "the fimteness of he said It was no cure merely to pretend that a person was never in pain, worried or anxious "Part of life is having the capacity to reach into yourself and find a cure CAN YOU FACE ANOTHER HOT SUMMER WITHOUT AIR CONDITIONING?
