Bread is one of my favorite things to make. I love how such simple and basic ingredients make something so good. Since the ingredients are simple most of bread making is all about the technique. I posted my favorite sandwich bread a couple months ago titled Simple Sandwich Bread. This is one of my favorite artisan loafs to make. You can use it for gourmet sandwich bread or serve it with a meal.
When I got more into cooking, one of the things that fascinated me a lot was bread. So few ingredients come together to make something so delicious. You would think more people would make it at home but that’s not the case. Most people are either afraid of using yeast or have had a bad experience working with dough. I’ve had my share of bread debacles but each time I’ve made a recipe that called for some type of dough, yeast or not, I’ve learned more about how to work with dough and make the end result successful. I’ve definitely had some failures along the way; all have been edible so far even though they didn’t come out just right. 🙂
