My group of Mellow Bakers have come to the end of their long journey through Jeffrey Hamelman’s book “Bread”.
There is a new group starting up baking through Bread this April 2012, so if you missed out some breads, or wanted to start from scratch with some new friends, pop over to Mellow Bakers and find out what’s going on.
All the recipes are in Bread by Jeffrey Hamelman
For anyone who owns a copy and/or bakes from the wonderful ‘Bread‘ by Jeffrey Hamelman and is thinking about joining in with Mellow Bakers, it’s never too late to join in, we’re mellow and we love company.
Mellow Baking means just that….whether you are beginning or want to get better at what you do, you can either bake along, making one, two or three breads a month, from Paul’s suggested list or you can bake from an earlier month or join in for a couple of months when you have some spare time. You can follow the recipes to a T, or use them to inspire your own bread baking development, there’s room for everyone to do their thing.
Post about what you bake on Mellow Bakers and on your blog, if you have one, though that’s not essential. If the recipe has been published somewhere on the net, then you can bake from that version too. Jeffrey Hamelman has also kindly given us the corrected version of the Vermont Sourdough with increased wholegrain here, so you could always try that one to start with!
Here is a link to Jeffrey Hamelman at work showing how to fold, shape and score and talking about bread in a series of short videos.
Hope to see you soon!
Here are the second year (2011-2012) of the project’s breads. There are links to the posts for the ones I made. If there’s no link it means I haven’t made the bread as yet but other Mellow Bakers will have made them so pop over to the site if you want to know more. For the breads and my posts for 2010 please click here.
