  • Basic country bread

    • twoyolks on August 22, 2018

      Making this bread is a bit long and involved of a process. But it makes an excellent loaf. There's just enough sour in the bread to make the flavor interesting. The crumb of the bread is loose and open without being too large. The crust was perfectly crunchy. The only negative was the bottom of the bread got a tad burned. This was great by itself and even better with some butter.

      As per the other review, yes a labour of love. I had to create a spelt starter (2 weeks) then 3 days for the bread. I learned a lot and kept rereading the instructions. Temperature and timing are key and I struggled with both. However I ended up with a definite sourdough crusty bread. I will try again, but on a weekend when I'm home. The other key thing, I will clean the oven. At the required temperatures an expelair didn't cut it...

  • Polenta bread

    • RosieB on March 05, 2015

      I made ths bread and it was so wet I was sure it was going to be a failure. I decided to bake it anyway. When I put it in my dutch oven the dough did not hold its shape and spread over the base of the dutch oven. After the covered period of cooking I was suprised to find the dough had risen. After completing the cooking it looked pretty good although not the traditional boule shape. We cut into it a straight away and it was a bit sticky but after leaving it for a few hours it had dried a lot. The final loaf was moist and tasty.

  • White gazpacho

    • fprincess on July 19, 2011

      This is wonderful. The combination of the white gazpacho made from the almonds and flavored with garlic (use good quality stale bread as you can really taste the bread in the soup), with the red gazpacho garnish, is very elegant and absolutely delicious! http://tartinestotikis.wordpress.com/2013/08/22/more-chilled-soups/

  • Le tourin

    • fprincess on July 18, 2012

      I was looking for a way to use a bunch of vegetables from my CSA which included collard greens, carrots and onions. I decided to make the Tourin, a rustic soup with torn pieces of stale bread, served with an egg, fried or poached (I opted for a poached egg Arzack-style). It was very comforting and the egg was a nice touch as it thickened the soup. I used homemade chicken broth and I blanched the collard greens before adding them to the rest of the vegetables.

    For bread obsessives, this book's insight into the artisanal bread world is about as inspiring as it gets...Robertson's passion can be felt through his stories...

  • Polenta bread

    • Lisa Is Cooking

      One of my resolutions for 2012 is to keep trying with the very-wet category of bread dough. I’ve been open about my inability to bake ciabatta with a fabulous, holey structure.

    • Leite's Culinaria

      This recipe is delicious and very versatile. It’s salty and sweet, creamy and crunchy, and quick to whip up if you make the sauce while the vegetables are grilling.

  • Flax and sunflower whole wheat bread

    • Lisa Is Cooking

      My only disappointment was the lack of the open, holey crumb that I saw in other breads in the book... Still, it was a nutty, flavorful bread that worked perfectly for sandwiches or simply toasted...
