A winemaker wants to be a wine-baker....
So, here in Hungary, it seems like everybody's got a farm, and coextensively a vineyard. My husband David and I don't, but we do have an incredibly kind old neighbor who's teaching us to make our own red wine. It's so much fun - picking our own grapes, grinding them, removing stems... Like so:
Naturally, in gratitude I've baked him lots of bread. We're not quite done, but in approximately two weeks we will have (for $50) 150 litres of red wine! Which leads me to my question:
I've seen and read a number of beer bread recipes. But obviously, we've got plentiful wine... Are there any breads which call for a splash of wine in the dough? It seems like it would be possible, but I've never seen any; I'm still a student baker, so I don't know if there are any chemical or taste-related reason for this. Does anybody know, and if wine bread exists, any ideas?
Also, if anybody is interested in other pictures and a diary of our winemaking process, it's on my blog -http://erzsebetgilbert.blogspot.com
