Thanks for the Links

January 21, 2007 @ 1:12 pm | Filed under: ,

I’ve been meaning to put together a post containing the various links helpful people have sent me since Jane and I began this blog. I really appreciate all the great advice you folks have sent my way—thanks so much!

Someone (sadly, I cannot remember who) recommended this site: The Fresh Loaf, a vast collection of articles and links about all aspects of bread-baking. The site also includes a discussion forum where newbies can post questions for more seasoned bakers to answer.

Some articles on this site that particularly caught my eye:

Wild Yeast Sourdough Starter (how to make your own starter using flour and pineapple juice).

Getting a Sourer Sourdough

Deluxe Sourdough Bread recipe

Why Yeasts Attack (background info on sourdough baking; good walkthrough with pictures)

More About Sourdough (part two of the above)

Lesson Two
(step by step instructions for yeast bread, not sourdough)

Domenico Bettinelli
left a link to a much-discussed NYT article about a slow-rise, no-knead method of breadbaking. You need an NYT account to access the article, but there is a video demonstration here.

I continue to spend a lot of time on Teresa’s Northwest Sourdough site and blog. I really appreciate her detailed walk-throughs with pictures. (And I can now testify as to the scrumptiousness of bread made with her NW Sourdough starter!)

    Melissa, you’re welcome. Incidentally, there’s been an update to the original article with a few modifications to the No Knead recipe.

    Thank you for the links. I like those ones about sourdough on the freshloaf. The approach is closer to mine — lets try this and see what happens.
