Today would have been John Lennnons 70th birthday and I was reminded that he wasn't only an incredible musician,activist, artist, etc., but a bread baker. His Playboy interview with David Scheff say's it all for me regarding bread. In an interview he even describes taking pictures of his first loaf, a true home baker!
Exerpt from Playboy interview with John Lennon (January 1981) by David Sheff:
LENNON: I've been baking bread and looking after the baby.
PLAYBOY: With what secret projects going on in the basement?
LENNON: That's like what everyone else who has asked me that question over the last few years says. "But what else have you been doing?" To which I say, "Are you kidding?" Because bread and babies, as every housewife knows, is a full-time job. After I made the loaves, I felt like I had conquered something. But as I watched the bread being eaten, I thought, Well, Jesus, don't I get a gold record or knighted or nothing?
