Haven't Lost My Touch
Coming up on four years since I first tried to bake bread. The history has been kept here in my Fresh Loaf blog. For the first two years or so, I baked almost weekly (and blogged often weakly). Then, as my experimentation yielded satisfactory formulas and techniques, the baking became a bit less frequent and the blogging much less frequent.
I have continued baking, maybe once or twice a month. And I remain an active evangelist for Carbotarianism.
Recently, due to a busy work schedule and then a vacation, I went about six weeks without baking bread. The freezer stock was depleted, and my Number One Bread Fan commented on the dearth. So....I baked her favorite, and mine: San Francisco Country Sourdough.
I feared that I might have forgotten how. But the old saying is true: once you learn how to fall off a bicycle, you never forget. The result was very satisfactory.
I want to give thanks again to my wonderful mentors and friends here at The Fresh Loaf. Hope all are well.
