Don’t be afraid.
What you see at the top of this post is not a science experiement gone wrong. Trust me.
It is the beginning of what I hope will become a beautiful loaf of bread.
If you have ever dreamt of baking delicious bread at home, join me.
I give you Tartine Bread by Chad Robertson and Eric Wolfanger.
While I wouldn’t say I’m a novice when it comes to baking bread, I certainly have very little experience compared to other types of baking. Like seemingly everyone else in the civilized word I became a fan of the No-Knead bread phenomenon.
As a huge fan of the Tartine pastry book, I could not resist picking up a copy of the bread book.
Impressive and ambitious, the book is about making your own bread with your own natural starter.
And that’s what you see up top.
I’m only just starting my bread journey with this book so I will keep you posted on how Sherwood (that’s what I named my starter … will explain at a later date) and I are doing.
In the meantime, if you are a bread baker, bread eater, bread lover or if you just spend your day dreaming of bread, please pick up this book!
