These two contestants are ready to compete for the prestigious award - Best Amateur Bread Baker. They've gone through the competition, who did not know to enter, and secured a place in the final round.

The final, and only, challenge is to produce at least one loaf of traditional French style bread.

This is Milliways Masterchef! Cooking doesn't get any tougher than this!

"I believe," Teja says, "the first thing we need is a hand-mill."

At least that is what the Roman soldiers used to have.

"It is grain, already ground!" Teja says. "How does it keep, and not catch fire?"

"Flour explodes on its own, very often," Teja says. "And it is much less easily stored than grain, as it will go bad."

"I shall start with finding flour, then," Teja says. "It would say so on the bag, one assumes, or the jar?"

Teja goes through the cupboards. "How is whole flour different from other flour?" he asks, lost in choices.

"Indeed," Teja says, "I wrote it upon a wax tablet, which I have in my belt pouch. But flour comes first, in any case."

"I know not," Teja says, "that I truly wish to use magic upon bread."

"Then, indeed, we may use it," Teja says.

Pause.

"I think I found what I wish for."

Teja follows his recipe also, and then adds what the package says, with the spoon Guppy used.

That must be right.

"That is not bread!" Teja says. "Bread is round!"

"It would not fit in that oven, if it is too long," Teja says.

Teja is still kneading dough, wondering if he is doing this right.

Teja finally decides to form his dough into two oblong shapes.

"I shall follow suit, then," Teja says, doing so.

"We are both but blind men, stumbling beside each other," Teja says. "Rae Seddon will mock us terribly, and make us promise to never bake again."

"Now we must sit back and have tea?" Teja says.

ostro_goth: (Aghast)

"Your bread is escaping!!" Teja exclaims.

ostro_goth: (Shocked)
From: [personal profile] ostro_goth
"It has grown to fearsome size!" Teja says. "How is yours?"

"Cannibal bread!" Teja says. "We must have help -- let us find Sunshine, and Dr. Lecter!"

Instead, Teja bends beside him and pokes the amorphous mass with his sahs.

"No," Teja says. "I shall get help."

He rises, and turns to go away.
