Almond (anything) + bread = bliss, in my book. These almond buns struck me as potentially winning additions to the Christmas brunch table. Or perhaps as a pre-brunch snack. If they last past my getting them off the baking sheet, that is.
Thought you folks might be interested in this review of ITJB from The Jewish Week. http://bit.ly/rFaneV
Not only does it talk about the book, but also about TFL and the role it played in bringing Norm and me together, the role of TFLers in the testing .... even the Challenge that's going on now.
As I've said so many times before, without TFL, none of it would have been possible! Thanks so much.
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.
