The idea behind Mellow Bakers is like a book group, except there is only one book at a time, at the moment it is Dan Lepard’s – The Handmade Loaf (amazon link) . As an online group you work through a selection of the recipes, sharing your experiences and results.
This really appealed to me, so I bought the book and plan on joining in some of their April bakes.
I plan on documenting those bakes here, but I will not be posting up the recipe from the book, as that would be unfair to Dan. (The book costs <£10, buy it if you are interested)
Having had a little flick through the book I am intrigued, at the very least. A lot of the recipes are very different from things I would normally bake. There is a lot of recipes involving a starter, so I am working on mine, and a variety of flavoured loaves.
In addition to the recipes there is also a lot of discussion about the nature of bread, which is very interesting. Not to mention all the bakes being beautifully documented with his own photographs.
Once I have made a few of the recipes I will post up a little review of the book, I also have another in the post, so will try to write more reviews.
I hope to have some new and exciting bakes to present soon.
