You’re thinking, “Sour Seed Dough?” what is she up to now? Debra Wink gave me the idea of playing with the Boudin original recipe, which she sent me. We have been experimenting back and forth with it to obtain a “sour” bread. It is obviously not the way they(Boudin) bake their sourdough now. Home baked sourdough’s are still the best.
Earlier I mentioned I wanted to try to bake in the woodstove in the basement where I am living. It looks like this: (Wouldn’t it inspire you to try baking in it?)
It has been cold here as of late, so I fired it up and ran it all night long. There were some nice coals in the morning.
Brod and Taylor sent several of us online blogging bakers their new Folding Bread Proofer. I was one of them. My Technical Administrator on the Sourdough Forum and I were talking about jerry rigging our own proofer before I received notice from Brod and Taylor about testing their new proofer.
Visiting with some of my family:
I have been busy and haven’t posted or baked much lately. However I always seem to be thinking about sourdough anyway. While visiting family in California, I came upon some “California Sourdough” baked in the Midwest and shipped to the coast. I think it should have read, “Midwest Sourdough.” I decided to pass on it. I would like to find more local Artisan sourdough style breads to review.
The credit for this bread goes to a man dear to my heart. He does not know lime is one of my favorite flavors. He came up with the idea the weekend we met and we worked on it together, so it will be a favorite of mine from now on. It is unusual and quite delicious.
Michael Eggebrecht teaching the Professional Baking class at Kneading Conference West.
I was lucky enough to attend the first annual Kneading Conference West in Mt. Vernon Wa at the WSU extension center. The conference lasted three wonderful days, Sept 15 – 17 2011. There was so much to see and do that it was hard to pick which classes to attend. The food served was really good and the people were just my kind of people.. obsessed with bread.
This is Summer Sourdough cooling off quickly in my freezer. I am sending it to a friend and want to cool it down and get it into the mail on the same day. Hopefully this experiment with sending bread in the mail will be successful. Since I am sending it to an understanding friend, he can always toss it in the compost heap if it arrives in sad shape!
