I hate to sound like a broken record, and I promise that I won’t say it again, but bread is so f—ing amazing when one considers that almost all breads are different ratios of the same ingredients. I enjoy working with it so much. Watching these pitas puff on the baking stone left my mouth hang open and my eyes wide with wonder. Ridiculously fun. I so wanted to share this with someone. Anyone really. Just drag some hapless guy off the street and say: “Hey! Wanna see something cool? Watch this!” If I lived in a nice suburban neighbourhood, maybe this wouldn’t be such a risky move, but being that I live in a rather questionable area (hurry up already with the gentrification) deep in the city, maybe I should gush by myself. That being said, Rick and I had them for dinner that night with hummus and a movie. Simple is what the doctor ordered for my flu-ridden husband. Yes, Captain Canada is sick. It’s a perfect time to wash his cape.

WHAT ARE THE ALPHA BAKERS? : Here’s how it works: once a month, for the next two years, 25 Alpha Bakers commit to baking their way through every recipe of Rose Levy Beranbaum’s The Bread BibleEach month we post our experiences on our blog sites: our successes, our failures, our likes and dislikes. The recipes are scheduled in advance so that everyone is baking the same recipe at the same time. No recipes can be shared in my Alpha Bakers The Bread Bible posts due to publishing restrictions enforced by the publisher, but if you love to bake bread, this is a must-have book. You can see other tutorials for the same recipe at the following link: http://breadbiblealphabakers.blogspot.ca.
