Patient readers of this blog have noticed the long hiatus. I’ve still been cooking and have accumulated knowledge to share here. Much time has been devoted to learning more about bread making and experimenting with different methods and flours. After enjoying throw-stuff-in-a-bowl-get-some-sort-of-bread chaos, I’m ready to settle down and learn some of the intricacies that result in delicious yet predictable loaves of bread. I’ve learned from reading the blogs of many fine bread makers that bread fanciers benefit from keeping a notebook similar to the notebooks of wines tasted by oenophiles.
With today’s loaf of oat honey bread, I’ve embarked upon creating my notebook here on the blog so I can share it with you and so I will know where it is when I’m looking for it. (Those who love me know how I tend to lose anything I set down. )
