We interrupt your regular programming to bring you the following Public Service Announcement:
More baking with brewers yeast with my Champagne Yeast Pita and Champagne Yeast Brioche Sometimes I get crazy ideas. Like using “I Can Spell” as my campaign slogan for class secretary in 5th grade.

I made this puff pastry video to go along with the post about pastry doughs from a few days ago, but I think it also deserves a post of its own. Puff pastry is one of those mythical doughs that most people think that they can’t make. And all of them are wrong. Honest, it’s […]
