Where Stuff Is Cooked

A Quickie About Bread

Still getting the hang of this whole WordPress thing, but I figured I’d take a minute to talk about bread. I love it. And ever since my lovely sister gave me a copy of Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day I’ve been making it almost every day. It’s rather nice.

You don’t knead the dough, you don’t worry too much about rising times and you get a killer product. The weirdest part though is how wet the dough is. Here is a shot of it just mixed, doesn’t look right does it? want to knead...

But it is. And here is one after the only real rising time, two hours right after mixing. need a bigger boat

Uhm, they are pics from two different batches, just so you know. Anyway, at this point you keep it in the fridge for up to two weeks, pull off chunks whenever you want, let them rest a bit and then bake to your heart’s content. I’m still working on shaping skills, myself.

For every loaf that looks like this: a lovely loaf

I get five that look like this:it has a tongue?

Fortunately they all taste wicked good. With just the master recipe I’ve made baguettes, rolls, pizza, calzones, stuffed bread, foccacia and probably other things that I don’t remember. I can’t say enough good things about it, just ask anyone who has talked to me since Christmas. Seriously, I  haven’t shut up.
