Hannah Is A Talented Baker That Carves Beautiful Designs Into The Crusts Of Her Bread
Food art is now transforming our ordinary foods into stunning works of art. And if you think cake is the only food that is having a huge makeover then think again. Hannah P., the baker behind the Instagram account Blondie + Rye, is currently putting the entire culinary world in awe with her artistic breads.
The talented baker is introducing a revolutionary food art in using breads as canvasses for her art. Her so-called ‘crust art’ involves carving the bread crust into intricate patterns and floral motifs as can be seen on her Instagram page. Some of her basic designs feature amazing carvings on plain crusts. But some of her more decorative creations also involve edible embellishments such as veggies to give her artworks more color. Lifeless loaves of sourdough, flatbread and filled buns come alive with decorative carvings dusted with food color powder.

Surprisingly, Hannah isn’t actually a baker by profession. As a matter of fact, she is a high school history teacher who started her culinary journey about 5 years ago. And it all started when her co-worker gave her a Dutch oven along with a simple no-knead recipe. She used her free time to bake and later created her very own sourdough starter which she named Blondie. She was able to bake different types of sourdough breads since then. But baking the bread isn’t the only thing that made her fall in love with the craft.
Hannah found herself creating designs by carving the crust of her sourdough breads. She later incorporated the shape of the bread to the artwork itself. Flatbreads serving as a rectangular frame for her paintings, fougasse breads designed like jewels, pretzels in rainbow colors, bagels looking like a giant ornamental ring and many more. As a result of her success she created her Instagram page to showcase her awesome artisan bread creations and to inspire other budding bakers out there.
Follow the page on Instagram to see her impressive artistic breads. Hannah also includes the recipe for each of her creations on the captions. So, her followers can make appetizing breads that are pleasing to both the eyes and the taste buds.
“One would think this would make me very deliberate and keep good notes,” Hannah says, “but I also actually enjoy the irreverence of the improvisation. So I tend not to plan my doughs or designs too much.”
