Vermont is for lovers
Happy Mondays, all. I hope you had a peaceful weekend. Mine was not peaceful, since I spent it in Vermont photographing a friend’s wedding, while also pitching in to help our friend (and weekend roommate) Melissa decorate cakes for the event. (Not peaceful, but still loads of fun.) The chocolate cake recipe Melissa uses is one by my friend Posie Brien, and is highly recommended, should you be looking for something that is way too easy for the payoff. (It’s so good that this is now the second time it’s been featured at a Vermont wedding.)
Awhile back I shared my Serious Eats review of the Rosehill Sourdough Bread Mat, a baking tool I use all the time now, and highly recommend. If you haven’t purchased one yet, I’ve got a discount code you can use for a 10% discount on anything from Rosehill’s website, including the Bread Mat: WORDLOAF10.
Later this week I’ll be sharing several recipes from‘s new book on Roman-Jewish cuisine, Portico: Cooking and Feasting in Rome’s Jewish Kitchen, and tomorrow night I'll get to meet Leah at the event she’s doing here in Boston. Maybe I will see you there and we can both get our books signed.
And tomorrow I am doing an interview with another sourdough science expert, for a future post here.
What’s everyone else (been) up to, bread-wise?
