Baguettes de masa madre según Paul Merry, y una visita al molino de Rincón del Segura

Yo soy autodidacta, lo de los cursos no es lo mío y me lo pienso mucho antes de ir a uno, pero como este lo daba Paul Merry, experto panadero y especialista en hornos de leña, pues me decidí a ir.El curso trataba de hacer baguettes, nada más, y nada menos. La búsqueda de la baguette perfecta probablemente es para un panadero aficionado el equivalente a la búsqueda del bosón de Higgs para un físico teórico. La baguette perfecta debe tener una miga abierta, y una corteza dorada y crujiente. Hacer una baguette perfecta en casa es casi imposible.

Operated by Grupo Habita, the hotel is the first to facilitate the Mexican company's Social Stay programme that allows guests to connect on Instagram ahead of arrival.

"The Hollander's integration with social media forges a community where the most-digitally connected travellers can meet and share their adventures during their stay," said the group.

Aurora Arquitectos and Furo have transformed an old family home near Lisbon into a hostel, with colourful accents throughout based on the tropical patina of sunshine and vacations.

The hostel is situated just west of the capital in the coastal town of Cascais, an area frequented by both locals and tourists for its marina and sandy beaches. Formerly a family home, the property was acquired by an entrepreneur who is hoping to set up a network of hostels throughout Portugal. They tasked local practice Aurora Arquitectos and Furo with the creation of the first branch, specifying in the brief that the guest accommodation should have a high level of flexibility. "The building's overall structure derived from the logic of easy future transformation," said the practice, which is led by architects Sofia Couto and Sérgio Antunes. To begin, the architects used laminated steel to restore the largely dilapidated framework of the building. Ministry of Design targets millennial travellers with COO concept hostel.
