Whole Wheat Rosemary Foccacia – The Beginning of Bread Baking!
July 22, 2013
So, I finally baked bread yesterday. And, no, it was not a failed attempt.
I’ve been craving freshly baked bread ever since The Baker’s Dozen opened up earlier this year. Alas, their only outlet is located very very far away, and my desire to break warm, crusty, artisanal bread has been nothing but a dream. Why didn’t I just bake my own bread, you ask? Well, I am, rather was, quite scared of yeast – scared of going wrong with it (as I had once before). But, like they say, necessity is the mother of invention.
And, yesterday, enough was enough. I’d already collected a few recipes for breads and had come across this Whole-Wheat Rosemary Foccacia one on Archana’s Kitchen. Since the ingredients were all there, I simply had to follow the recipe. Thanks to the incessant, and bordering obsessive, Masterchef Australia viewing, I had got an idea of how to knead bread dough and went about preparing my warm, yeasty bread on a nice rainy evening.
