Photo Gallery: Beginning Bread Baking

Wed Jun 3, 2009

Baking bread isn’t easy; though watching someone bake it really helps cement the concepts and break down the mystery. Here are some photos from a recent class at Sur La Table taught by Tina Rogers.

Mise en place. In baking, have everything measured ahead of time.

Salt and heat kill yeast.

Kneading the dough. Do it by hand to get a feel for the texture.

Shaping the loaf. Press and roll.

The loaves, cooling from the oven.

What the final pumpernickel loaf looks like.

Fresh bread and butter

    I’m a bread baker – it’s easy for me, perhaps because I’m a breadaholic! So you’ll be seeing lots of bread on my blog, delightfulrepast.blogspot.com (just started last month) in the coming months. I get so excited when I come across someone just learning to make bread. Beautiful photos! I’m a great believer in mise en place (first photo). PS I came to your blog from the FBCE – I’m also a great believer in ethics!
