  • Back on my feet and baking

    I'll admit it, between a two week school break and getting a bug I hadn't baked for a while -- and I missed by own bread. Is it OK to say that? :-)

    This is 40% KA GP and 60% whole wheat with 20% whole rye. It's a little underproofed and undersprung, but I guess that's OK. Ahhhh.

    Looks like you did pretty good for a "rusty" baker!

    Your oven spring looks pretty good for the high whole wheat and rye content. Did you use sourdough or commercial yeast?

    Be well!

      Thanks Jay,
      For now, I am doing all of my hearth bread with the sourdough I got from CJ. I'm only using yeast for pizza dough and focaccia. The weather is getting better, and I'm thinking of doing more videos.

          The list is pretty long:

          1. Ciabatta with poolish dough
          2. Pizza dough
          3. Sourdough whole wheat bread
          4. Tuscan grilling
          5. Coq a vin al forno
          6. Focaccia dough and baking

          More?

            Hi James!

            You are on the same "program" I am. Sourdough for all bread and yeast for pizza and foccacio (though I do occasionaly cross both bounds). After I return from defending my dissertation in April, our local top pizza place, Dough, and I are going to be experimenting together on sourdough pizza. Should be fun.

            The videos sound good! Keep'em coming!

              That's an interesting thought. I wonder how many people make sourdough pizza. I'm going to post something.

              Good luck with your defense Jay.

                Thank you!

                It is truly intimidating to be a 60+year old doctoral candidate. Cramming all this stuff in my head is PAINFUL! But...rewarding in some form, I guess.
