Yeoman Janice Rand. Maker of coffee and diet salads, artist and efficient worker. And also the person with probably the best hairstyle on the Enterprise. Yeoman Rand’s hair was one of the things that fascinated me when I first watched The Original Series, and I marvelled at how much work it would have been to maintain. Naturally, this meant I had to create an edible version of her braided lattice hair.
This is a standard bread recipe that you then plait or braid. Normally, plaited breads are divided into 6-8 strands and actually plaited together. I took the instructions used to create lattice pie tops and used this to create this lattice bread. The great thing about this bread is that you can tear off individual pieces to eat as small dinner rolls, or cut larger slices and toast them. I’ll post full process photos on the Facebook page so you can see all the steps in weaving the bread together.
