Happy New Year Babes!
That’s the first bread name that I haven’t been able to have any fun with in a long time.
Usually I can either play with alliteration or make some cheesy / snarky references but this title is just, well, kind of boring.
On the other hand, Elizabeth, of blog from OUR kitchen, and our host for the month, has an ‘anything but boring’ story to go along with her efforts to bring this bread to the table.
At one point she even compares it to the infamous Croc:
Some people can just never let go of failures….
That was my failure, not hers….
Elizabeth actually made this Tartine Polenta Bread twice.
It was the first effort that she compared to the Croc. The second effort, and the recipe that is posted for others to use, was a smashing success.
As usual, in a group that is sadly lacking in the ability to follow directions (and in this case that starts at the top), the use of polenta is a mere suggestion.
Elizabeth used millet.
You’ll just have to go to her post on Tartine Polenta Bread to read all the, ahem, details.
While you’re there, grab the recipe, instructions and all the details about being a Bread Baking Buddy this month.
Then check out the rest of the Babes for their Tartine…
And their many and varied opinions of it.:
And that’s it for the Babes in January….
