The Bread Bible Rose Beranbaum, Baking with Julia (Child)

March 3, 2012 - 2:22pm -- RuthieinMaryland

Just recently I began baking bread again after many years' of mostly pies and cakes.  I got started down this road when the bread I normally purchased for myself and my husband skyrocketed to nearly $4.00 per small loaf!  Add to that it's a not particularly flavorful sliced white bread suitable mostly for holding more interesting fillings!

Rose Beranbaum's Focaccia recipe question

August 10, 2011 - 12:24pm -- Tpayson

I have been using Rose Beranbaum's recipe for Focaccia for the past few months now. Today will be my 6th time that I have made it. However, the past 3 times I have hit a really big snag.

The first few times were beautiful; light and airy and perfect. The last few times, not so much. I have followed her directions religiously, always, and they've always come out perfect. The last three times, they've all come out flat, greasy and uninspired. I was wondering if anyone else has experienced the same problem with this.

New at this baking. I do love this recipe. I can not really tell the difference between the Kosher Salt and the Fleur de Sel. However, I'm going to try the Irish Butter and see if that will. Sacaduros
