Current Obsession

Just in case you were wondering what I was up to with my free time I am driving myself crazy with becoming a bread baker!

I'm not talking with a bread machine or even the Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day. Been there done that and I need something more!

I want real artisan bread like you would get at a french cafe. Seeing as I'm not going to France anytime soon I've taken it upon myself to bake my heart out.

I checked out an embarrassing amount of books at the library to find out which would be the perfect bread reference.

Many had me scratching my head, and getting turned away by way too much mathematics. But The Bread Bible by Rose Levy Beranbaum is fantastic. I made the ciabatta yesterday and was beyond pleased!

So if you too want to go bonkers in pursuit of great bread, start here. Then make your own butter. All you have to do is throw some cream and a little bit of salt in a food processor. Let it go until it separates into buttermilk and butter. Voila!
