Bread is so simple and lovely. Every step of the process is an exercise in observation-not only visual, but tactile, olfactory and gustatory. There are so many elements in the process that can be played with and manipulated to one’s own liking and so every loaf provides the opportunity for experimentation. The fundamentals of bread-namely flour, yeast, water, time and temperature-are so simple, yet there are infinite possibilities for variation, no matter how slight. I love the trajectory of interactions involved in creating, and of course eating a loaf of bread, and delight in experimenting with others’ advice, techniques and recipes as I discover my own approach.
Please bear with me as I venture to understand how to blog. Enjoy!
