My quiltsMy 2001 Grant ProjectSociety for the Protection and Preservation of Fruitcake

Sunday, August 21, 2005  

My first-ever ciabatti are out of the oven. Too hot to eat. Look and smell good.

Meanwhile, I find, the fruit of yesterday's baking has been described as "food porn" by the notable Fortune. Oh my! Well, it was pretty tasty! Thanks Fortune - I'm going of to blush now until the bread is cool enough to slice into. the heck with that!

For those wondering what poolish is (see below) it's a preferment of flour, water and a little yeast that goes into the making of things like ciabatta and other breads. Mix up flour, water and a very small amount of yeast and let it start bubbling. Stick it in the frig for 1-3 days and then make yummy bread with it. It has the consistency of a sort of frothy, silky, yogurt but of course, not exactly.
