I LOVE CROISSANTS
One of my most favorite things to eat is the ever so flaky croissant. It was one of my favorite things to bake when I did the pastry chef thing. Laminating was a craft that I wanted to perfect. I wanted to get a feel for the dough that was innate. Well, I’m not sure I ever did make it to that point, but I sure do still love making croissant dough. Now, it’s definitely a lot more difficult to do this at home with a rolling pin compared to doing it with a commercial sheeter, but it’s still very possible. Why not give it a go and perfect the craft?
KIMCHI BUTTERMILK BISCUITS
Yup, you read that right. Kimchi buttermilk biscuits. I think it must’ve been an Instagram conversation with @jubjubfarms where we talked about kimchi scones that had me going down a rabbit hole of biscuit testing. I do this thing when I’ve got an idea…I look for a recipe that already exists in the world and then try and twist it to fit what I’m dreaming up. Five test batches of your run of the mill buttermilk biscuit recipe later, I decided that Bon Appétit Magazine’s Best Buttermilk Biscuits recipe was the one I wanted to jump from; the most flaky and tastiest biscuit I’d had in a while.
GRILLED LAVASH BREAD
Grilling season is finally upon us! Well, really it’s been grilling season for a little while here in Atlanta, GA but I won’t rub it in for anyone who’s been digging out of the crazy winter we just had.
Based on my past posts, you can probably tell that I love bread. I love all kinds of bread. Crusty French Bread, soft Hokkaido Milk Bread, German Rye Bread, Jewish Challah…all of it. I love making it at home too. Some of it is a bit harder to accomplish at home, but this recipe for Lavash Bread is so easy you don’t even need a mixer.
