Today, I made the Basic Hearth Bread from The Bread Bible. Apparently I have a few things to learn about yeast and / or altitude. Despite the non-rise fail, my kids ate it up and asked to have this kind of bread all the time. We are working on making more food thanks to that book I'm reading and never post about. (One of these days, a book post.) What I like about The Bread Bible is that it is so comprehensive, you will really know every aspect of bread making, once you read it. The thing I don't like is, it is so comprehensive, it will take a long time to read it, and sort out what I want to do. The bread tasted great, however the outside was veeeerrrrry crunchy. I guess no one minded!
