(Note to Floyd: This is a cross-post from the Books forum, since not everyone who might be interested in a new challenge hangs out there. Please feel free to move this post if it is more appropriate elsewhere. Thanks!)
I've had two weeks now with Stan and Norm's wonderful book, and I'm ready to bake. All of it.
Anyone game for a challenge? I think that doing this in parts might be a fun way to do it -- that way, people who can't do the whole book in a row can join in a "semester."
The "First semester" would start at the beginning of December.
If there's enough interest, I'll be happy to coordinate it on a blog here at TFL.
Let me know what you think!
I had an idea while looking at breadbakingbassplayer's recent spelt posting and formula.
I have an enormous collection of bookmarked formulas entirely from TFL members that I eventually want to bake.
Would anyone be up for a challenge of selected TFL member formulas instead of Hamelman, BBA or Leader.
Just think, you could have an author's immediate feedback and I'm sure the individual authors' would be excited about perfecting their own formulas by having a group of TFL people bake them.
If you are looking for a diversion from artisan breads, or you just want to expand your baking horizons, surf over to The Modern Baker Challenge and check out the new venture some of us are undertaking.
Like the BBA Challenge, which I just completed, we are going to bake our way through an entire book: Nick Malgieri's The Modern Baker. Nick's book contains sections on quick breads, yeast breads, tarts, pies, and cakes. There are about 150 recipes in all. And, yes, I am planning to bake every last one of them.
