Needing the bread is the only phrase to describe the warmth and pleasure of a fresh-baked loaf. I literally cannot go more than a few days without filling the kitchen with the aroma of bread baking in the oven.
Sourdough won over our hearts in 2020, and now I can’t stop making it! It is a marvel that three simple ingredients (flour, water, and salt) can yield so much complex, beautiful flavor. Thankfully, Mark shares my love affair with every kind of bread that I explore. Whenever there is a loaf baking, he floats into the kitchen like a mouse to cheese. I love it when he invariably exclaims, “That smells SO GOOD!”
And then those loaves give up extra goodness in their second life. We are addicted to transforming the leftovers into crunchy croutons, syrup-covered French toast, and Melba toast. Yes… needing the bread is core to who we are!
