Baking Artisan Bread – Emile Henry Baguette BakerDecember 22, 2018 by Jenny
My baking game is sad this month. I have baked a few things including bagels, cakes. cookies and bars but I haven’t begun the all important holiday baking. Truth be told, I usually start that task after the 16th (my birthday), but this year – I’m even farther behind. Today, I spent an hour gathering up ingredients and preparing my recipe list to start tomorrow. I also hope to work on my brioche for my next Modernist Bread post before the end of the year. Wish me luck.
While you all still have your baking mojo in full force, I have
another related giveaway for you. Today’s book is Baking
Artisan Bread with Natural Starters by Mark Friend, founder of
Kansas City’s Farm To Market Bread Company.
For over twenty years, Kansas Citians have enjoyed the full-bodied, wholesome flavor of Friend’s bread. Now we can create our own artisanal sourdough, levain, rye, and biga at home. In four clearly organized chapters, this small but mighty book guides aspiring bakers from starter to warm, aromatic finish. After you master the four core recipes, there are variations for each to add to your baking repertoire.
Special thanks to the publisher Andrews McMeel for providing the materials needed for our preview and offering copies of this book for our giveaway below.
Now for the bonus giveaway – for one member today we have an Emile Henry baguette baker in red. Let me tell you how I came about this extra cloche. I caved and ordered the baguette baker from King Arthur in linen (I already have a red one). It was on sale and I had a reward certificate so I felt less guilty about it and the linen color is just so pretty. When I received the baker, it was wrapped with two feet of bubble wrap at the top of the box and nothing on the bottom of the box and I’m sure you can guess what I’ll be saying next – it was broken. I contacted King Arthur, who sent me a replacement. When I received the replacement which was only wrapped once in bubble wrap in a smaller box, it was red. I didn’t want red, I already had the red. I emailed the customer service personnel at King Arthur who happen to be so wonderful and friendly! When they replied, they told me to gift this baker to someone for the holidays and they would send me the correct color!
King Arthur is my go-to for baking supplies. I’d love to someday
take a class at their school in Vermont. Their classes and events
