Bread making continued and a cookbook review


I let the first rise go 9 hours then preheated the oven to 475 for an hour. I made the nice round boule and let it rise while the oven preheated. So it really only needs that hour. I put it on parchment and voila. It worked great.  So this is not the sourdough which didnt rise as nicely.  I’m going to work on the ratio of sourdough and water and I may add a tiny bit of yeast ans wee how that goes.


no knead bread!!!

The book review is of “A Modern Way to Cook” by Anna Jones.9780399578427.jpeg

It is a vegetarian cookbook with quite lovely pictures. Unfortunately, the recipes are quite weird and seem to be odd combinations. Such as charred celery root steaks. Humm, not sure about that.

I did like how she separated recipes by time, such as ‘ready in twenty, or forty minute feasts’.

It just didn’t seem to have appealing ingredients in the recipes. I mean what is ‘sumac yogurt’??

So, get this one from the library and save your money on something you will make recipes out of.

This book was given to me  by blogging for books in exchange for my honest opinion.
