One of the most bizarre quarantine phenomena has been the bread baking taking place all over this country. Pictures of perfectly browned Boules permeate Instagram and Facebook feeds and the run on sourdough starters and hard-to-find flour have made national news.
Blondie + Rye Artisan Bread
Touted as a way to reduce stress, the hobby has become one of the most popular quarantine activities for both beginners and experts alike. People are perfecting their recipes and improving their craft with sourdough as the most popular.
But just as you’ve finally reached the point where you’re feeling pretty damn proud of your latest loaf, someone like Hannah P. of Blondie + Rye comes along whose incredible sourdough recipes are as impressive as her artistically manipulated dough.
Sour, sweet or savory, she often applies pieces of shaped dough in layers for the textured decorative crust.
She shares photos of her bread before and after baking, so you can get an idea as to how she creates the patterns within or atop the loaves. Her recipes for the artisan breads accompany each of her posts.
