Jan Hedh book released - but no weight measurements!
I've just received my long-awaited copy of Jan Hedh's Artisan Breads book (just re-released) and, as pointed out by Virtus in the Book Review forum, although Hedh repeatedly tells us to use scales for accurate measurement, the (American?) editors have decided to give all ingredients lists in cups and tablespoons!
Virtus reckons that actually they have made a worse mistake, as they have assumed that 100g = 1 cup (which I believe is not very accurate!?) - I wondered if anyone out there who has an older copy of the Jan Hedh book could possibly spare a few minutes to give some ingredients lists?
I'll start with the first one I'd be interested in trying - in the new book, it is called Le Pain de Lodeve, in the wholemeal section.
For 4 loaves, the ingredients listed are:
5 cups + 1/2 tbsp strong wheat flour
5 cups + 1/2 tbsp wholemeal dinkel flour
28 oz levain
3 cups + 1 1/2 tbsp water
1 1/2 tbsp salt
If this recipe is in the older book, could someone please possibly let me know the gram or oz weights for these?
(PS I've emailed Peters Yard Bakery, and also the publishers, but in the meantime just would like to check if Virtus' deduction works out!)
