I baked bread yesterday!
That doesn’t really sound that remarkable except that I have a fear of cooking with yeast. I’m a baker of all things except yeast bread. I’d stuck my toe in the water with the “No Knead Bread” from Jim Lahey (Sullivan Street Bakery / Co.) when it ran in the New York Times. However, now I have a Dutch oven (for proper steaming) and saw this new recipe in Eating Well: Seeded Multigrain Boule. Yum!
I’m going to continue working on it – I think it was a little dense and the airpockets weren’t big enough. Call me fussy. However, we’ve had great toast, and I can live on (good) toast some days.
Not every day.
