Rosemary Recipes? a la Rosemary Diamante from Essential Baking Company in Seattle (and other marvelous rosemary sourdoughs)?
Many years ago, a local artisan bakery here in MD offered a really spectacular rosemary boule. Then the owners sold the business, and unfortunately the bread went down a couple notches.
A few years later, I moved to Seattle for a bit (~2005), and discovered the Essential Baking Company...and specifically their Diamante Rosemary loaf! OMG, it's a loaf I could swoon over every minute of the day. Some days that's all I did. My memory back then it was a boule, though last year when I visited it was a batard...I guess my memory was off in that regard. Anyways --
I've tried my hand at making an incredible rosemary-infused sourdough soooo many times over the years, and have always been left wanting. I've tried: tossing rosemary in the loaf and/or on top; rosemary steeped & cooled in olive oil; chopped or not; ground or not; etc. Still looking for a good method, though.
Anybody have a great recipe along these lines that they'd want to share?
Thanks for reading!
