Introducing Jack Straw

I am excited to announce the arrival of our newest team member, Jack Straw (my new liquid levain starter). Jack has been inspired by Richard Miscovich's new book From the Wood Fired Oven. Richard was the man who taught me how to bake and to finally have his coveted book in my hand makes me feel that I am supporting my baking past and building on that foundation to push onward into my baking future. 

This book is filled with great recipes, and I will review it in full once I have worked my way through it. I would like to take this time to announce my next bread challenge. Baking through the breads in Richard's new book. Although I will not be sharing the recipes I will share the lessons learned and hopefully teach each and everyone of us a bit about bread, a little about life and a whole lot about love. Stay tuned as this will not start till I have chronicled all of Jeffrey Hamelman's Rye Breads. (i am a quarter of the way through at this point.)

I am proud to have spend twelve weeks under your guidance and even prouder to have your wisdom and creativity on my kitchen shelf. 

Bake On
