I freaking love bread.
Not the flimsy, spongy white stuff that comes pre-sliced.I’m talking about real, crusty, glorious bread.
You might remember that I’ve been playing around with a basic and easy no-knead bread for a while. Over the past year I’ve been making all sorts of little variations and generally just changing it up for fun.
Though it truly is awesome, and an excellent place to start as a bread-baker, I decided recently it was time to step up my game.
While wandering around Portland, Maine on our recent vacation, me and the hubs sought shelter from a stray rain shower in a quaint book store. He picked up this great book all about the history of, and how to make cocktail bitters (don’t worry I’ve commissioned him to write a guest post all about it), and I found the new love of my life.
Enter the Tartine Bread book.
