The first week in our new book: Baking with Julia. The book is not new, indeed it's a couple of years old. But what I like of the book is the baking part. I love being a member of French Fridays with Dorie, it let me meet great recipes and new tastes, don't get me wrong, but I love, love, love to bake.
And the first thing we bake are white loaves. Simple, but really nice.
The only comment, but perhaps that's what we are used in the Netherlands, is that there is that there isn't enough salt in the recipe. But because it's a great bread, really tasteful and airy, I baked another one already and increased the salt to 1 2/3 teaspoon for 2 loaves. That's the amount we like here.
And the bread is a winner. I bake all my bread and this ones on the menu each week.
I hope many of this recipes will follow, because it really is a great recipe.
Are you curious already, buy the book Baking with Julia, from Dorie Greenspan. I did and I've seen the rest of the recipes that are coming. If you like baking and real good stuff, you should try this book.
If you want to know what the rest of the bakers made of it (I read about 300 bakers), then you can go to:
the other bakers will post here.
Because I'm in full business to seek everything out for my garden, I will not post until Friday, but I can't wait to make that one on French Fridays with Dorie.
And for the final result.
