Local Breads (post #63020)

Yes, go ahead and laugh, I bought another bread book. HOWEVER, I used my bonus points at the cookbook club, AND closed my account, so there.

I have to say one thing, though - every single recipe of this book makes me want to grab some levain and go at it.
Every single one.

Made my first bread from it today, "Quintessential French Sourdough" - divided the dough in two, baked half today as a small "batard" and the rest was shaped as a "boule" and will be baked tomorrow. I was going to take pictures but forgot until half the loaf was gone.

I think I am in love.....

anybody else has baked from it? Any favorites?

Local Breads is in the mail, with my name on it. I bought a copy for a friend last year and figured I was still lusting after it, so finally got a copy for myself. Can't wait til I have it in my hands.

My copy is waiting for me in Mount Vernon, WA....along with Hamelman's book.

Oh, you will love them both! I've made several of Hamelman's breads, his sourdough is my default weekend bread.

It must be like a kid in the candy store when you arrive and have all those wonderful books waiting! Such restraint. Don't think I could do it.

well, I am not into sweets, that definitely helps to keep the weight in check.

I love this book--this and Hammelmann and BBA are my favorites.


BTW, are you still doing the BBA challenge?  I've got poolish waiting for the ciabatta now...

Yeap - I am a little ahead, actually, but have held back on posting, to keep the pace with everyone else

My last post was on ciabatta, bread #7

but I already made cinnamon rolls and the Cinnamon Raisin Loaf (today) - I will probably blog about the rolls mid week
