Today’s Bread

02020-04-06 | Uncategorized | 2 comments


In November of 2011 I purchased the book Tartine Bread, by Chad Robertson, and a few weeks later I began to make bread. I estimate that I have made more than 1,000 loaves since then.

There are many books on baking bread at home. Pick one of them and make your own bread. It is incredibly satisfying to see the dough evolve over several hours and, as if through alchemy, become a lovely loaf. It’s calming, too. :-)

You can also use the sourdough starter to make banana bread or muffins. I have been obsessed with making thin flatbread to eat hummus with and made this using only starter, water, salt, and cumin seed.

Speaking about hummus… to my taste homemade hummus is so much better than store-bought and I make a batch once a week starting with dried chickpeas. But back to bread… while we are stuck at home, why not begin a bread making practice and start an American bread revolution. :-)

    You are my breadmeister!

    I sent a wonderful video to ottmar@ottmarliebert.com. I forwarded it from my cousin Wrendi. You will laugh, laugh, laugh.

      The flatbread makes a good design for an alien head, like none anyone has come up with yet! With useful ears that look like hands. :-}
