I'll be helping out with the next Cooking for Charity class on Wednesday, January 28th at 6:00 pm at South Stephens Appliance in Roseburg. Mary Edwards will be making Portuguese Hard Rolls, Ed Hoffman will make a Country French Sourdough and I will be doing this Five-Grain Bread and talking about (and grinding) whole grain flours.
This loaf is made with an overnight sponge and a whole grain soaker and includes wheat, rye, cornmeal, flaxseeds, and rolled oats. It can be baked as a pan loaf, but for a crusty hearth loaf I'll be demonstrating a Dutch oven technique and baking on a stone with a inexpensive, homemade clay pot "cloche." Both methods trap the steam coming out of the dough as it bakes and are far superior to spraying uncovered loaves with a plant mister.
