The morning after the day before

My friend and erstwhile baking student, Nicola, sent me this amazing photo today of her kitchen – the morning after the day before.  Although she thinks they might be inedible because she forgot to turn the heat down, we say “oh well, we do that every once in a while and although the crust may be a bit thick and they may be a bit dark, they will still be delicious.”

It is super rewarding to teach someone who then more or less never buys bread again and who just keeps working at it (in spite of some disasters…).  Thank you Nic!  You are an example to us all.

  1. You proof the bread in a proofing basket. You can get them at places like Divertimenti or order them online from bakery bits. after kneading the dough and letting it rest, you shape it into a ball and dip the ball in flour and lay it in the proofing basket to rise. When it has risen, you roll it gently out of the basket onto a baking sheet to bake.
