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.
