Jim Lahey is a quirky guy in New York who knows a thing or two about bread. Mommy and I signed up for his bread-making session during the NYC Wine and Food Festival. Not knowing what to expect, we walked into Sullivan Street Bakery with a sense of adventure.
He walked in, talking a mile a minute about bread and his special ovens that spanned the entire bakery. We got our hands dirty with the dough he prepared for us. We got a quick lesson on how to handle the doughs, how to score the tops and why bread is so incredible. We each made a loaf of white bread and a concord grape and anise seed flatbread.
We bought a copy of his pizza book and his bread book - autographed one for me and one for Tina.
Now, we've got a little piece of Jim in our kitchens.
