Bread Alone, By Daniel Leader & Judith Blahnik
Years ago I made bread and didn't worry about it. I don't remember all these words, biga, poolish, etc. I just did what my Grandma did. Now in my retirement I'm trying my hand at it again. I have this book Bread Alone, Leader & Blahnik, another Bread by the Moons. Bread Aline is very detailed and I did get bread, but took forever and the dough was very loose.
The Oatmeal Bread from the Moon book, Had to be pitched. I live in a small town and don't have access to compressed yeast, maybe that's the problem.. Maybe I got the measurements of active dry yeast wrong. I really don't want to give up. Where do I start?
