Time to Move On

Today, my bread was beautiful. Both of my loaves sang like angels (well...I exaggerate...the crust crackled sweetly) and it tasted wonderful. So I have decided I need to move on. My Tartine bread is great and it is time to learn my next bread craft. Here are some pictures. More tomorrow (I have a lot of Homer to read).

My whole wheat turned out well, but the crumb was not perfect. I also still have not learned how to properly roll a brad in rolled oats or seeds. Someday soon, I hope. It was really yummy, though.


  1. Bravo! Congrats! I really mean it, you have a great attitude towards challenges. I can't wait to see what you tackle next. The Tartine looks fabulous.

  2. Thanks so much! I'm not sure what I am going to tackle next. I am leaning toward a couple of bakers-yeast breads: honey-wheat challah and whole wheat and semolina bread. I also want to work on my semi-wheat ciabatta recipe since my mostly-white ciabatta turned out so well. I'll have to see.

    Who knows? Maybe I'll go crazy and make bagels (the dough is very stiff so they are hard to make without a stand mixer).

    I'll bring some Tartine next time I see you.

  3. I did hear them sing....a lithe and lively little song. And all can say is YUM!
