NEW BREAD for the NEW YEAR
It's that No-Knead recipe from the NYTimes. We went to a nice New Year's Eve dinner party last night, but came home about 10, since we had all the boys with us. A couple of us then stayed up to watch the ball drop (haven't done this in years, decades maybe, but one son really wanted to check it out. Verdict: somewhat underwhelming!) Then I went straight into the kitchen and started the year off right by making bread. The dough (pictured above) has to sit for 12-18 hours at one stage so it's definitely a plan ahead bread.
It was a strange new method, but the result was excellent!
