Best wishes for 2017!
Let’s resolve to make our own bread or to buy it from a trusted artisan or, if neither is possible, to carefully read the list of ingredients before purchasing an industrial loaf. In the bread world, less is more…
May 2017 help spread the bread revolution across the land and beyond.
Thank you for reading Farine! I wish you all the best.
Hello MC I just found the story about the bakery in Normandy , what fun ! I would love to visit that place . I ,like yourself have a real passion for baking breads. I bake about 3 times a week and sourdough is a mainstay though I’m always trying new. I found the story about Dado,s in Chicago as well and tried the pita breads this evening for new years supper, I have not had much luck with pitas before this one but they blew up like wow and tasted great. We just relocated to a new home in the south of the U.S. The back yard had a big stone chimney that must have been some old homesteads fireplace , the building was gone but the chimney stood there waiting for me ! We built a wood fired bread oven and that chimney is the smoke stack. That’s what intrigued me about the co pains in Normandy , my oven is bigger than I need and takes a while to heat up. I think the bread trough might help me to ready enough dough to be more efficient and have a few to sell around the neighborhood. I like the simple dump it in recipes , that’s how I cook most dishes & its fun to see someone is in business using that method. Sorry I’m rambling , I just wanted to make contact with you and tell you we enjoy this site so much . You are top shelf. Thank you. I would like to send you a picture of my stove , if your interested , let me know how to send it. …………………….Dave
