Calling all bakers! Round Two of the Inside the Jewish Bakery baking challenge is now under way!

April 21, 2012 - 11:08am -- Urchina

Hi everyone!

Round Two of the the Inside the Jewish Bakery baking challenge is officially under-way. Those of us involved in this challenge are attempting to bake our way through Stan Ginsberg and Norm Berg's excellent and recently-published book "Inside the Jewish Bakery: Recipes and Memories from the Golden Age of Jewish Baking." The challenge is being hosted here at the Fresh Loaf, under the "Challenges" forum header, and will go from this week until the end of July. We'll take an August recess, and come back for the third round in September.

The Inside the Jewish Bakery Challenge -- Semester One (December, 2011 - March 2012)

Note: In another display of his amazing awesomeness, FloydM graciously created a "Challenges" forum for the community here at The Fresh Loaf. I've decided to migrate the Inside the Jewish Bakery challenge to this forum, and to make a separate forum thread for each of the "assignments" in the challenge. This should let people 1. Find what they want more quickly and 2. Jump in and out of the challenge more easily.

New Baking Challenge

August 22, 2010 - 1:36pm -- alabubba

There has been a lot of talk about extending the testing of recipes from the NYbakers. It would seem that many on this board like the challenge.

So, here is my proposal. Every couple of weeks one of us will propose a challenge. Open to all. To bake something OUTSIDE of their comfort zone. Lets find something interesting. Dig into those recipe books and the WWW.

With that said, After my last :o( bake for norm I have a bunch of egg whites left over. I have been wanting to try my had at french macaroons. Soo.
