The Bread Journey

breadjourneyI love to make bread.  To take a handful of ingredients, give them a good spa treatment - massage, rest, and sauna - and voila: warm bread.  Over the last ten years I have thoroughly enjoyed the therapy of making bread: pouring my energy into the dough and watching that work come to a rather immediate fruition.  I find the whole process is extremely gratifying.

Recently, I've begun to expand my knowledge base in the area of bread making.  From the types of flours and their properties and importance to bake-ware and baking methods.  So, beginning next Monday, I will be guiding the Bread Journey, exploring all of these things and more.

  1. When I was about 12 years old, my uncle, who was a bachelor at the time, came by my house to pick me up in his little MG convertible. After making a sweep through town so I could be seen in that cute little car, we went to his place and made homemade wheat bread and black eyed peas. It was a very special day for me. Now, whenever I smell yeast or the wonderful aromas of baking bread, I remember that day. I'm so glad you are posting on this topic!
