Calling All Bread Heads

Bread Heads -- (of which I am a new one) --  check out this great presentation by bread guru Peter Reinhart.   He speaks eloquently and enthusiastically about the transformation of bread.  I guarantee you will want to eat a slice of bread before he's finished. 

I bought his book, The Art of Bread, in the fall after taking up Molly's challenge with gusto.  Funny thing though, the book I use the most is Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day.  I just made a batch of olive oil bread dough today to be baked tomorrow.   Photo to follow.

I love the idea of making our own bread, but we are lucky enough to get free bread every Tuesday night from a local bakery, so it isn't worth it. (One reason why I bought a humungous freezer.) It all looks so lovely though....

"Bread is solid beer; beer is liquid bread" Ahhhh. Now i understand this fascination of mine. Good man, Reinhart. I love how he gets poetic and philosophical about baking. God love him.
