We just got this book:
I’ve just had a chance to glance through it, and man… it’s packed with recipes and techniques. This Reinhart guy really knows how to teach.
I didn’t really know where to start because there are so many options. Christina suggested that I start at the beginning and work my way through, one recipe at a time. First up is the Master Recipe. He gives a basic Whole Wheat Sandwich bread recipe and talks us through it down to the finest detail. That way, he can be a little more vague in later recipes and refer back to the Master Recipe when he needs to.
Here’s what I came up with:
It’s tasty, but the addition of a sweetener (honey, in this case) masks the sourness of the starter. It’s very light and tasty, though. Stay tuned for #2.
