I did a lot of dutch ovening this weekend, and it was all under kind of unusual circumstances. The best laid plans of mice and men, etc... Everything changed up.
The turnout was terrible. There were quite a few guys who had told me they were going to show up and cook along with us, but only one came (
That's Richard, in the picture). Later on, my wife joined us, as did one other guy and his kids.
spicy turkey (a small one) and some no-knead bread. I added basil, oregano, and cilantro to the dough, and it made for a delicious flavor. The other Elder that came over and cooked made a chocolate and marshmallow pudding. Really, great food. Too bad so few were there to sample it.
dinner-in-a-pumpkin, but he injured his back and was immobile, so he couldn’t come over. I decided to do it anyway, and it turned out great.
I’ve been working on an overall outline for a cookbook on yeast breads in a dutch oven, and I’m very excited about it. I’ve started writing some of the parts, and I’ll be posting them here as they come. Stay tuned for that!
