Artisan Bread article in New York Magazine

March 5, 2012 - 6:19pm -- sweetbird

I thought this was an interesting article on artisinal bakers in New York City, which includes some history on the artisanal baking movement. If you look at the bottom of page 3 there are several related articles, including an eye-opener about Jim Lahey, "The Mad Baker of Sullivan Street." He's a bit rough around the edges...!

One of the loaves featured is a buckwheat-pear bread. Seeing it inspired me to bake one of my favorites -- a buckwheat-apple sourdough with hard apple cider. I baked it today and hope to post it tomorrow.

Jim Lahey's Popeye Pizza

I debated between naming this thread Jim Lahey's Popeye Pizza, and Jim Lahey's No-Knead Pizza Dough. But since Jim Lahey's name is practically synonymous with "no-knead," maybe the latter is redundant. Anyway, it's green, and St. Patty's day is this week, so I thought I'd share.
