Bake fabulous and easy whole grain artisan breads just like great-great-great grandma used to do. We’ll use cast iron pots to bake two types of breads in your home oven that will change your life (!) The first will be an unkneaded bread that makes a dandy pizza as well as an exciting exploding cheese volcano bread. The second type of bread will be a kneaded bread that serves as an example of how to bake any bread in an iron pot. Dinner will be roasted winter veggie topped pizza, salad and wine.
You’ll need a cast iron dutch oven size 3 1/2 or 5 quart or a ceramic cloche to make these breads. Enameled cast iron will do as well.
A copy of my new book, Aunt Barb’s Bread Book is included.
PS Here’s a cinnamon roll pan bread you can make out of the kneaded dough in case you don’t have a dutch oven.
