Pain - A little less than a happy high

Pain
Pain de campagne


Ok, I cheated. I had left the dough to rise overnight, but when I got up this morning it had not so much risen as spread. The only reason I could think of was that the wee beasties that were responsible for the tang had somehow overpowered any yeast that had made it into the mixture. Since the dough was pretty flavorful and because I wasn't terribly interested in just giving up on the loaf, I kneaded in a culture of commercial yeast and let it work over the course of the day.

So anyway, this is the loaf. I've yet to cut into it, but it does smell wonderful.

Man, I'd come to the Pacific NW in a heartbeat. Could we get queso fresco from Coelho Dairy and make chiles rellenos?

The housemate just got back from a trip to Germany, and commented right away on the smell of bread in the house. He said it reminded him of the places he went to while he was away.

This made me happy.

450F for 30 minutes.

it looks extremely authentic. :)

The 90's taught us that if one thrives for authenticity, it should always be EXTREME.

^_^ Thanks, and welcome.

No pain, no gain?

I don't know yet. I'll probably break into it this evening.

You, my good sir, are COMPLETELY RAW! You're like Brock Sampson, grillin up some flank steak while dynamite fishing and thinking about muscle cars. Nothing is more manly than you and I salute your dudeness.

Do I win the yellow school bus with gothic-arch windows? 'Cause that would be awesome.

I am jealous, sir. All I can manage is dicing an onion to put into my tuna salad, and microwave the occasional hotdog.

You're a DOMESTIC MASTER!

Mmmmmm . . . bread pr0n

I woke up to find this shot on the computer. It made waiting to get to work for breakfast even tougher. Beautiful work! Looking forward to your taste test.

For all the hand-wringing, it was fun, too.

It looks fabulous!

But really, you're putting me to shame with all your DIY greatness.
komos From: komos Date: August 11th, 2006 06:07 pm (UTC) (Link)
And I've nowhere near your artistic talent, so there...

;P

Fancy! Is it as delicious as it looks?
komos From: komos Date: August 12th, 2006 02:01 am (UTC) (Link)
But of course!

I swear I can smell it from here. Mmmm.
