Hello Everyone! I’ve had a lot of interest in my new course and am excited for this Friday to arrive. Friday morning I will be sending out the Pre-Launch notice to all of the people on my Early Bird list. Not only do they get early entrance to my new course, “Learn to Bake Classic Bread, […]
How many of you sourdough bakers like good cheese with your sourdough? My friend Daniel, is an expert on cheese and has a fun course all about cheese. I wanted to help him promote his course and he agreed to have a discount just for my blog readers so without further ado here is the […]
I have been called the queen of blisters…. ha ha ha! I love it! Now if you are from those countries where bread crust blisters are considered a fault, then go off and hide in the corner because this post isn’t for you. Here in the USA we love blistered crust,
I’ve been working off and on with my Brod and Taylor dough proofer as I put together my courses. I’ve added the new optional second shelf to extend my use of the proofer. I’ve used this proofer since it first came out in and was actually a beta tester for the company. I jumped right […]

I was asked to add a baguette formula and “how-to videos” to my new Udemy Course. It took me a few weeks to work out a formula I liked. I did four different iterations but was unhappy with the outcome until the last experiment. Then I hit pay dirt! The taste is beyond fantastic!
I had a lot of fun coming up with this formula for 100% hydration 100% whole wheat sourdough bread. It was really easy actually. I used Bob’s Red Mill Organic Whole Wheat flour and made up a 100% hydration dough, enough to make two loaves. This was in response to a student in my class […]
Accomplished baker, Vanessa Kimbell wrote a great post on “Sourdough and Digestibility.” I was very interested to read her post because I have people frequently asking me this very same question. In my own family I did some experimentation (with willing, no actually demanding subjects) with the digestibility issue. .
I’ve had a lot of people asking me about my dough trough I use in my videos. I kept telling people they are 1/4 size Cambro Translucent food pans with lid (it’s what they were called when I purchased them, only it may have been wrong). I gave out links but then there seemed […]
I had a lot of fun baking this bread and making this video. There’s an overnight sourdough bread formula in my book, but this one is different. The dough has whole wheat, rye and bread flour and is very sticky with a high hydration. You will see how to handle a very sticky dough.
