Pre-heat oven to 200°C; 400°F: Gas 6. Dissolve the sugar in a little of the milk and use to mix the yeast into a smooth thin paste, then add to the remaining milk. Cover bowl and leave in a warm place for 15 minutes or until the mixture is frothy. Sieve the white flour, wholemeal flour and salt together into a large bowl and make a well in the centre. Make a well in the centre of the flour and pour in the yeast mixture. Add the water, butter, onion, herbs and garlic to the mixture. Mix together well and then knead for at least 5 minutes, until it becomes a smooth, elastic dough. Shape into a ball and place in a warmed lightly greased bowl, cover and leave in a warm place for 60-75 minutes to allow it to rise. Turn out on to a lightly floured surface and knock out all of the air, kneading lightly. Divide the mixture into two portions, shape and place in the prepared flower pots. Cover with lightly oiled cling film and leave in a warm place for 30-45 minutes, to rise. Pre-heat oven to 200°C; 400°F: Gas 6. Brush with beaten egg, and sprinkle with seeds (if used). Bake for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown. Turn out on to a wire rack to cool. Note: Two new and unused 15.25cm (6 inch) terracotta flower pots are needed for this recipe. They need to be 'seasoned' before use. Wash thoroughly and oil inside and outside. Heat in a pre-heated oven at 190°C; 375°F: Gas 5, for 25-30 minutes. Repeat the process two or three times.
