Default Back on my feet and baking

I'll admit it, between a two week school break and getting a bug I hadn't baked for a while -- and I missed by own bread. Is it OK to say that? :-)

This is 40% KA GP and 60% whole wheat with 20% whole rye. It's a little underproofed and undersprung, but I guess that's OK. Ahhhh.

Looks like you did pretty good for a "rusty" baker!

Your oven spring looks pretty good for the high whole wheat and rye content. Did you use sourdough or commercial yeast?

Be well!

Thanks Jay,
For now, I am doing all of my hearth bread with the sourdough I got from CJ. I'm only using yeast for pizza dough and focaccia. The weather is getting better, and I'm thinking of doing more videos.

The list is pretty long:

1. Ciabatta with poolish dough
2. Pizza dough
3. Sourdough whole wheat bread
4. Tuscan grilling
5. Coq a vin al forno
6. Focaccia dough and baking

More?

Hi James!

You are on the same "program" I am. Sourdough for all bread and yeast for pizza and foccacio (though I do occasionaly cross both bounds). After I return from defending my dissertation in April, our local top pizza place, Dough, and I are going to be experimenting together on sourdough pizza. Should be fun.

The videos sound good! Keep'em coming!

That's an interesting thought. I wonder how many people make sourdough pizza. I'm going to post something.

Good luck with your defense Jay.

Thank you!

It is truly intimidating to be a 60+year old doctoral candidate. Cramming all this stuff in my head is PAINFUL! But...rewarding in some form, I guess.

When it is over I will hopefully not have the vertical leap or float time but I will have the name... Dr. Jay )
