Monday Morning Open Thread 12/13/21
2022 wish list edition
So this is going to be the last week of formal posts at Wordloaf for 2021, since after this Friday I am going to take the rest of the year off to catch up on rest and relaxation (which probably just means baking constantly without needing to document it right then and there). I will still be sending out the remaining few holiday recipes I promised you, which are: a chocolate-sour-cherry sourdough, those Alicia Kennedy/Burlap & Barrel pumpkin spice pumpakryddbullar pictured above, and the fancy za’atar bread I mentioned earlier. (The pumpkin spice buns are going to be a subscriber-exclusive recipe for the time being, so there’s no better time than the present to gift yourself or a loved one a paid subscription.)
This Wednesday I’ll be doing sending out a year-in-review post, but I’m already starting to work on recipes and content for 2022. For this last MMOT of 2021, why don’t you all let me know what you’d like to see (or see more of) around here in 2022?
Well I’m up for more of everything 😀. But I would love a focus on some new techniques like tangzhong with or without sourdough involvement. Also I need a better understanding of hydration and whole grain flours. I know there is a general formula I would like more recipes that use the formula so I can use it more. Merry Christmas Andrew and Happy New Year!🎄🥳
I'd love a sandwich loaf with the heart of an "artisan loaf" or an explanation as to why you shouldn't just throw "the loaf" into a pullman pan
