In my search for new, odd adventures, I've decided to try to learn more about baking bread. I've enlisted the help of a couple of different resources:

[livejournal.com profile] buhrger - it was a wee while ago that I moseyed over to his house to assist him. What I mostly remember is "Holy mother of hugeness, Batman! That's a giant mixing bowl and that's a whole lotta dough."

The Tassajara Bread Book - I've made the basic yeasted whole wheat bread recipe so far. It involves a whole lotta waiting and kneading and punching and more waiting. The loaf turned out lovely and dense, but I was blown away by how long it took to make a couple of loaves. No wonder [livejournal.com profile] buhrger makes such vast quantities at a time!

Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day - I first heard about this on CBC - bread that involves no kneading, very little time commitment, and can survive in your fridge for up to two weeks. Sounds pretty intriguing so I picked it up and, tonight, I've made the dough and hopefully tomorrow I'll get a chance to bake it up for dinner.

I think I may need to eventually start doing doing drive-by bread drops if this continues. There is only so much bread I can eat on my own!
