Baking Bread

by | Dec 12, 2011 | Baking, Bread

Bread. Once you've baked a loaf, yourself, then acquired the concepts, techniques and methods, the process is a thourougly addictive habit. For me, the greatest pleasure are the stages.


From the daily nuturing of a levain all the way to feeling the wet dough that later crusts in your fingers.


At moments, you remember that this simple substance (dough) is a living thing who will come to full life, then die,cast into a crust in the baking. 


The pleasure is undoubtedly in the final result, and the taste and smiles it brings to those who taste it.

    So true. Every time I make a loaf, especially when I get it out of the oven, I get a thrill of excitement, my hit for the day.
