Bake Your Own Bread

Just got word that Farine is featured as Bread Blog of October by the three bloggers who started the Bake Your Own Bread campaign (the above image is their logo): Connie of My Discovery of Bread, Heather of Girlichef and Michelle of Delectable Musings.
I am very grateful for the honor and hope that BYOB members find on Farine enough recipes they want to try. I cannot agree more with the message: stop buying industrial bread (those squishy loaves we have all encountered) and make your own or go buy bread from your local artisan bakery! Artisan bread is good and it is wholesome. (Your community baker or you don't put in ingredients with unpronounceable names). 
By doing so, you will help perpetuate a skill that has helped keep mankind alive for countless centuries... Welcome to Farine, BYOB members!

  3. but we should not forget professional artisan bakers whose bread we should always buy when happens to be of high quality. in doing so we help this craft to survive and support the few professionals who think quality is more or at least as important as profit. xo

    1. You are absolutely right, Barbara, and I didn't phrase it right, did I? I re-wrote the post. Thank you for helping me focus the message!

  4. Congratulations, MC!
    Your blog conveys such a love of bread and baking, with its fine writing and photography, lovely stories, recipes and wonderful instruction - I completely understand why these ladies have chosen to feature Farine!

  5. You're right Barbara, when we have professional artisan bakers around we should buy their bread too. With no professional artisan bakers around our village in the north of Thailand, I'm happy to have found good quality flour and recipes and knowledge from fellow bakers like you all to help me bake a delicious home made bread. From MC's blog I choose the Meteorite, a huge bread. But maybe there's time to bake another?
    Thanks Farine/MC for your blog!

    1. the meteorite? will have to read that post! Connie, I understand you so well. Just back from a place where there is no artisan bakery and not even the imitation of it (which is what I often find here in Sweden, bread often acceptable but not outstanding). It is a great resource to be able to bake bread at home, happy baking to you!
