Yeast, water, flour and salt. The transformation those four humble ingredients undergo to make bread is downright inspiring. I know it’s science but little unscientific me prefers to think of it in more metaphorical terms.
I used this recipe to make the baguettes. It works! They’re delicious! They played a role in all the food this weekend – my favorite being a buttered sponge to soak up the yolk of over-easy eggs and the juices of the most decadent tomatoes I picked up at the farmer’s market Saturday morning.
