Gloria, John, and Janet with their hand-kneaded
loaves of whole wheat bread.
I had the great pleasure of spending the day helping three of my dear friends hone their baking skills. They were eager students and, as you can see from the photos, produced some lovely loaves.
We made 100% whole wheat potato bread, traditional baguettes, all-butter pie crusts, and no-knead refrigerator roll dough for featherlight dinner rolls.
We managed to time it all so we could sit down to a lunch of cream of cauliflower soup, a freshly-baked baguette, and coleslaw with diced green apple, chopped hazelnuts, and dried cranberries. Oh, and chocolate chip cookies for dessert.
Good work, gang!
