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.

A huge thank you to Norm and Stan for the NY Bakery testing experience

August 9, 2010 - 10:23am -- bnom

We've reached the end of the test baking experience for Norm Berg and Stan Ginsberg's NY Bakery Cookbook.  I've found it a highly rewarding experience.  It's stretched me in many ways (skills and waistline).  I have never been very disciplined about following recipes so that in itself was worthwhile.  I certainly gained respect for how challenging it must be to write a cookbook--particularly a baking book with all its variables.
