If you’re not familiar with abbydodge.com, now would be a very good time to pay her a visit. She is the genius behind the baketogether projects. Each month she posts a recipe. Anyone who desires can bake it, post results, modify it, post more results. It’s always enlightening how many people can prepare the exact same recipe and achieve results which look quite different one from the other. And when the variations take off, even more learning kicks in.
Here are photos of my latest variation on her Peasant Boule, the January baketogether event. To Abby’s basic recipe, I added a teaspoon each of fresh, minced rosemary and thyme; the zest of 1 Meyer lemon; and about 4 ounces of Fontina cheese, 1/4″ dice. If I don’t find a home for part of it, I’m quite certain I will eat the entire loaf all by myself. Today. Good thing it’s snowing like mad today. I’ve got some shoveling to do.
