Two summers ago, I ressurected my interest in baking bread. The last time I baked bread was when I was in highschool. There was a picture of me holding my sourdough bread but unfortunately, it vanished. I hope it resurfaces again. I recall the bread came out as hard as a rock. Still, I was proud that I baked bread. I don't remember how it tasted, it was more about how tough it was. My jar hurt. I am nott sure what I did wrong but the dough went through a lot of kneading and resting so it would rise. It was a lot more complicated than the bread I make today, which is a no-knead bread, thanks to Chad Robertson for inspiring me to bake this way. I took one lesson from Clemence Gosset at Gourmandise School of Sweets and Savory and I got right into baking again. Last year, Itook a break from baking, because I had to finish my Ricecraft book. I didn't want my baking temptation to distract me from writing the book. But now that my book is finished and I am free to do anything I want, I chose to bake again on a regular basis.
I will be posting my breads from time to time. Here is yesterday's Spelt bread.
