Monday Mix 12/4/23
Happy Mondays, everyone. I made a braided challah over the weekend, as a test for the formula in my upcoming book, which up until now had only been made as a pan loaf (it is a tribute to my favorite NYC kosher dairy restaurant, B&H Dairy, a place I used to eat lunch at regularly when I lived in the East Village).
A couple of quick holiday shopping notes:
Thanks to my friend, who mentioned them on her own holiday gift guide the other day, I am nearly out of starter stirrers, though I plan to make one last batch of 20 or so. That will probably be it for the year, so if you wanted one, best to jump on it ASAP.
Also, just a reminder, you can get a 30% discount on Nakano Knives using the coupon code WORDLOAF and 10% off anything from Rosehill Sourdough using the code WORDLOAF10. (I got a set of those spatulas just the other day, and they are very nice, in case you were eying them.)
Today I am working up two more recipes for my book, both new/refined versions of loaves I’ve shared here before: Oatmeal-Maple Porridge Sourdough and Burned Bread Bread. And I am working on completing my upcoming cinnamon swirlcollaboration recipe.
What did everyone else bake up recently?
