Baking & Pastry Project Week 4 - Sandwich Breads


Baking & Pastry Project Week 4

What's going on? I was a very lucky woman and received a copy of the Culinary Institute of America's Baking & Pastry book along with their culinary dvd's from my family for my birthday and our anniversary. After watching all the DVDs, I decided to work my way through the CIA's Baking and Pastry book - of course making it gluten free. There were so many skills that I wanted to develop and work on. I hope you will be interested in sharing my journey with me.

You can also follow me on Twitter, where I'm glutenagogo.

Equipment

Pain de Mie Pan - It's not necessary to make this recipe. If you decide you want one or you'd like to see what they look like, they are available at Fantes.

Pullman Loaf Pan - It isn't necessary to purchase a pullman loaf pan to make this recipe. You can mimic the effect of the pullman pan with a regular loaf pan, a sheet pan and several bricks. You can also purchase several sizes of Pullman Loaf pans from Fantes. You can buy the smaller size at Williams-Sonoma and in a larger size at Kerekes - bottom and top are sold separately.
