The books I'll be using:
The Bread Bible by Rose Levy Beranbaum
Baking Artisan Bread by Ciril Hitz
proofing board, flipping board, couche, sheet pan.
Here's what it all really means: Proofing board: for resting dough and working with the dough. (Basically a large cutting board.) Couche: Tightly woven cloth usually made of linen used to cover the dough during proofing, and helps separate and support long bread dough forms. I'm making my own out of a 16x30 piece of linen. (In french it means bed.) Flipping board: used to transfer dough forms from the couche. (As least this is what I understand at this point.) I just bought a board and my husband is going to sand down the sides for me. Proofing: the final rising of the dough. Sheet pan: Instead of buying a stone to bake the bread on, I'm going to buy unglazed quarry tiles and put them in the sheet pan.
I didn't really post much near the end of the 2010. I was in the kitchen cooking and baking though. Here are some breads I made at the end of last year.
rosemary bread, roasted garlic bread, and olive and cheese focaccia bread
