Rita makes the bread from scratch. It’s the kind of thing they like the Martha’s to do. A return to traditional values. That’s what they fought for.
THE HANDMAID’S TALE
There are SO many great shows out right etow and the one I’m completely obsessing over is Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale starring Elisabeth Moss, Joseph Fiennes, Alexis Bledel, and Yvonne Strahovski. I had no idea what the show was about going into it but I’m such a huge fan of Elisabeth Moss (ESP Mad Men!) that I knew I would love it. The show is inspired by the 1985 novel, The Handmaid’s Tale, by Margaret Atwood. I haven’t had the chance to read it yet but I’m so excited to add that to my reading list.
This loaf of bread is inspired by a scene in the first episode when Offred, played by Elisabeth Moss, walks into the kitchen while Martha is working. This is a quick recipe and doesn’t require a bread starter so it can be easily done in an hour. How amazing is that? Please enjoy and let me know what you think of the show!
