L’Otto di Merano.
The Bread Baking Babes need a geography lesson.
This isn’t the Finnish bread it started out to be, but when does life work out according to plan?
And, if one is baking in the heat of August one should bake a bread from a warmer climate right?
If you want to know what living within easy biking distance of a brewery supply store has to do with the bread going from Finnish to Italian you’ll just have to read the whole story.
Elizabeth, of blog from OUR kitchen and our host kitchen for August, tells it with her usual flourish.
She also baked some lovely bread.
According to the ‘official’ recipe: “This moist and slightly tangy rye gets its name from its shape: two balls of bread connected at the center look like a figure eight. Eat it with smoked meats, game, smoked salmon, caviar, fresh cheeses, or oysters.”
As usual, I have visions of red wine, hard cheese and smoked sausage.
If you want to join the fun this month go to blog from OUR kitchen and get the recipe as well as the scoop on being a Bread Baking Buddy this month.
And that’s it (so far) for the Babes in August!
