The Inside the Jewish Bakery Challenge -- Semester One (December, 2011 - March 2012)
Hi, everyone! It's almost time to start the Inside the Jewish Bakery challenge!
We'll be baking nearly every recipe found in the wonderful "Inside the Jewish Bakery" by TFLs very own Stanley Ginsberg and Norman Berg. Not only will we get a chance to bake all the recipes -- we'll get to eat all the recipes! I can't wait!
It turns out that this fabulous book has enough recipes to keep us occupied for over a year. So, I've broken it up into 6 "semesters" of approximately 15 recipes each, spanning about three and a half months each time. Semester One begins on December 3 of this year, with the following lineup:
Posts allowed until this date
1-2-3 dough (Use in Mohn Bars, p. 234)
213 / 234
Lace Cookies (Florentines)
Honey Whole Wheat Challah
Polish Potato Bread
Sour Cream Coffee Cake
Black and white cookies
100 percent cream cheese cheesecake
Sweet Egg Dough (for buns)
I'll start off each item with a post or or near the assignment date for that item, and then the comments section of this blog will be open for anyone to post their experience. To keep us all more or less together, I ask that if you're going to participate, that you post your comments by no later than seven days after the original assignment date (which happens to be, also, the first day of the next item on the list).
There has been tremendous interest in this challenge, which is so exciting. I've decided to not keep close track of who is signed up or not -- you all know who you are, chime in as you please. If you miss a week -- or two, or three -- join back in. All are welcome. I'm hoping that the semester format will help the task seem more manageable -- there's a lot of ground to cover in this book!
I'm looking forward to the adventure with you all. And until then -- Happy Thanksgiving!
