makes me want to bake...

...OR eat baked goods. The latter is more likely to happen.

Baker Beth introduced me to this video and now, I have new obsession.

I can't wait to be back in New York later next month and make a visit.

Inspiring.

Have a swell weekend!

Have we ever discussed whether you bake bread? I don't think we have. But you do, don't you? You have to; you're Greek.

You should make some. Carve out a day in your schedule. Make dough, read a book while it raises, bake it off, and then sit around eating bread and butter all night, which should put you right to sleep.

I have not baked bread in over a decade.
It would be a good thing to do. Maybe when I get back to NY in Feb. I'll only be there for a week for work, but I'll find some time. It sounds like a soothing idea...

Beth said...

Yes, do. It's such an interesting pursuit. It requires focus but it's relaxing at the same time. And the reward is spectacular, as you know. Bread is magic: simple ingredients, a bit of effort, a d bit of time, and you've created this amazing thing.

A- you don't have to publish this or even read it. It brought back a memory I had forgotten.

My dad was born during the Depression and raised in Appalachia. A common man, not very demonstrative with the touchy-feely stuff--doesn't often share memories. He served in the Army during the late 50's-early 60's and was stationed in Germany. He made it to France once. He has B&W photos of baguettes and told me a wonderful story about seeing them and how wonderful they tasted. His fondest memory of France--bread--from a man raised on biscuits and corn bread.

He's a retired autoworker and has a small organic apiary on a farmette in TN.

Denise- I love that story about your dad. The power of bread...and France. Thank you for sharing. -A
