For about the last five years I've made a new years resolution. Until today I've broken that resolution by the time the next year rolls into view. That resolution is to learn to make bread, by hand, the traditional way. No machines involved. As I type my first ever batch of dough is rising in a bowl. There's nothing left to do but enjoy a glass of wine, and wait. I'll tell you if I actually end up with bread a little later but for now... Cheers.
