The BBA Challenge!

So I was doing some research on baking, when I came across the pinch my salt website.  It's a good site about baking and such, but what really caught my eye was the BBA challenge.

The gist is this: To bake every recipe in the Bread Baker's Apprentice book by Peter Reinhart.  This will push your bread baking knowledge to the limit and more.  It appears the challenge has been going on for a few months, but no time like the present to start!

I decided that just baking the breads wouldn't be enough.  I plan on taking each recipe, and where applicable, making them corn and diary free!   I want to compare the two loaves to see how closely I can mimic the flavor/appearance.

We'll see how this goes, as I bake my first loaves this weekend!

So each recipe will be baked twice? Good stuff :). If you you can't get rid of the bread fast enough, I can send you our address ;)
