Pandemic Pondering #53

Today I broke my pandemic bread making virginity. Later than most people in this pandemic apparently.

The main reason is that my bread making in the past has been a somewhat lumpen experience.

We were gifted a Dutch Oven home-made loaf a month ago which was delicious. So I had a pretty tough act to follow and no Dutch oven.

But I do have a tagine with a cast-iron bottom.

Turns out Tagine bread is a thing.

The link above is the recipe I used for No Knead Bread.

A really nice flavour loaf that is also visually pleasing and if I’d bought it in an Artisan bakers I would have been happy with it.

But I made it, it’s beautiful and I’m ecstatic. Happy Monday.
