I have a coworker who’s always sharing her favorite Netflix show that she discovered. Recently, she shared her love of a show called Taste of the Country. The show is set on South Pond Farm in Ontario. I get cold just looking at the winter scenes.
But I was also fascinated by the scenes of them cooking bread in cast iron/le creuset dutch ovens.
Now, to me the best part of bread is the crunchy outside and the soft interior. And this looked like it produced the perfect blend.
So I set about to find a recipe. Le creuset delivered with this recipe, and I was fortunate enough to find one in another ebook. The ingredients were about the same, but the ebook had little kneading (sticky like biscuit dough) and 12 hours of rising time. I prefer the traditional bread dough:
But in the ebook, you preheated the dish in the oven and, man, the tastebuds sang when the dough sizzled as it hit the hot pan.
It turned out wonderfully. And tasted better.
Until next time.
