  • An Absolute Beginner’s Guide to Making Baguettes
    There is nothing better than an fresh baguette. And there is nothing worse than a long-winded description proceeding an internet recipe. So here are the facts, like many people staying at home during the pandemic, I decided to investigate the art of bread making. I’m a complete novice, and have absolutely no baking skills. This recipe is based on a combination of two youtube videos by experts John Kirkwood and Patrick Ryan, distilled down for the elementary baker. I highly recommend watching the videos, at least for the gorgeous accents. This is the perfect quarantine recipe, because it takes three days to complete and is best done when you don’t have anything pressing. That said, it is rather easy to make – I say as the completely NOVICE baker. I hope you enjoy.
