Late April Superbaking

                                     

Patty Nally is the brains behind our whole baking operation. She has mastered the art of baking and makes practically all our schiacciata, fougasse and specialty stuffed breads.

Dag! The worse thing about having a blog and making alot of food is being too busy (and thus too forgetful) to document all the processes, recipes and drama that happpens in baking.

                                       

Above is my “Scaletta,” an Asiago-stuffed slim ciabatta with black and green Cerignola olives, Molinari pepperoni and roasted garlic.

This year, I’m trying to commit myself to document some the righteous, bodacious, delicious and downright wierd stuff we bake here at Avalanche. Luckily, I’ve got a grat guy named Keith Mc Carthy to help with photo’s. Otherwise, I’ll  stop, was my hands, grab the camera and snap away.

                                           

Here is my King Family Farm chorizo and peppered bacon meatballs on a schiacciata with Bellweather Farms Crescenza from Sonoma County, fresh mozzarella, Stanislaus Alt Cucina tomatoes, fresh basil and Calabrian chili’s. (do I even havta say ‘yum’)

                    

I love making these Boule’s or what the French call “Bowls.” I use an organic levain made with spelt flour and knead these three times over a period of 2 days while they are retarding in my walk-in, this makes for a tight but consistant crumb perfect for sandwiches or bowling. “Steeeee-rike”

Here is a video of what we baked for this weeks Farmers Market. Please try to overlook the fact that my brain is fried from baking for 12 hours straight. (I mis identify the large loaf which is actually what I call a “Flintstone Wheel” or a Tortanno-type of large bread.)

    Superb concerns totally, you recently obtained a whole new audience. What exactly can you advise regarding this page for you to created couple of days earlier? Almost any certain?

  2. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if
    you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog
    that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
    I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and
    was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this.
    Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your
    blog and I look forward to your new updates.

  3. This design is steller! You certainly know how to keep a reader amused.
    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start
    my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Fantastic job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
    Too cool!

  4. Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is important and all. But think of if
    you added some great graphics or videos to give your posts more, “pop”!

    Your content is excellent but with pics and video clips, this website could definitely
    be one of the best in its field. Fantastic blog!

    It’s really very complicated in this active life to listen news on Television, so I just use world wide web for that reason, and
    take the most recent information.

  6. I’m impressed, I have to admit. Selldom do I come across a blog that’s both educative and
    engaging, and let me tell you, yoou have hit
    the nail on the head. The problem is something that not enough pwople
    are speaking intelligently about. I’m very happy that I stumbled across
    this during my seadch for something concerning this.
