Bread Talk

Friday, August 5, 2011


This week I got an early birthday gift from a friend in San Francisco. She knew about my beer bread adventures so she got me the Tartine Bread cookbook by the awesome Chad Robertson who owns the Tartine bakery with his wife Liz. The book is beautiful! I think I spent the whole evening reading it. (So dorky!). It has tons of mouthwatering bread recipes and about 30 sweet/savory recipes using days-old bread to make sandwiches, classic soups, and hearty salads.

Recently I read that "bread making is much like the design process".  That sentence stuck with me and after watching this video - I get it! It says it all. Even if you are not into bread, it's worth watching. It will totally inspire you:)


Darlings, what's your favourite cookbook right now? Have you ever baked bread before? Do you know the Tartine Bakery? xo

I bake bread ALL THE TIME. I love it so much. I even have a sourdough starter that made a year ago- it's still alive!

I don't have a favorite book, I just think about what I'd like to bake, the find a recipe on the internet. There's some great bread sites out there- King Arthur Flour is definitely worth checking out. Sign up for their awesome catalog!

That is so cool, Jenny! Thanks for the King Arthur Flour tip. I'm going to check it out right now.

i'm obsessed with my mom's old cookbooks from the 70's. they are tattered and have the best recipes. the classics are always best! :)
p.s. i've made bread only once and it was a disaster! i must return to it though!

Very cool book! My fiance brews beer, so we often make bread with his spent grain as well as a little of his beer. Delicious!

Diana Mieczan said...

How lucky, Tara! It's funny because I love beer bread but I'm not much of a beer drinker.

Diana Mieczan said...

Ohh..I'm sorry, Lisa and I have to check out the Food Networks! Thanks, Naina:)

Caroline of Salsa Pie said...

My mother is an avid bread baker. I am an occasional one. There is definitely something special and (not to sound cheesy) almost soulful that happens when you make your own. :)

Diana Mieczan said...

Totally agree, Caroline!

Diana Mieczan said...

Me too, PM:)
