Sourdough

30 Jul, 2013  |  12:27PM

Another culinary collaboration! Katie and I have been hand-making sourdough bread. Katie made some sourdough starter from a recipe in the Better Homes and Gardens cookbook, and we’ve made a few batches of bread in the last couple months. It’s a pretty decent workout kneading dough, and there’s some patience involved during the rising, but it’s been a fun process, and it’s so good!

Mmmmm

Katie and I have been experimenting with making rolls. So far I think we’ve been very successful, they’ve been delicious, aesthetically pleasing, and held together well. Not to mention pretty fun to make. Here is a pic that Katie took of our finished product this evening. Tonight’s menu was California Rolls, and Spicy Tuna Rolls.

I was trying to go back to sleep, and this idea popped into my head. Mix the idea of tacos/tamales with ravioli. Perfect thing to make with Jake! We got together with our friend Garrett, and made this crazy idea a reality, and it was actually really good.
