As I mentioned on a previous post I am going to join an online group that will be baking our way through this book. Several times a month participants will bake selected recipes from the book. I will be posting my results on this blog. Today I received the cookbook which is based on the original PBS series hosted by Julia Child. Working my way through this book will be like taking a course in baking. I look forward to learning many new tips and techniques from Julia and the twenty-seven master chefs who participated in the series. Tonight’s homework is reading through the Baking Basics which is the first section on terms, techniques and equipment. Typically I never read this section in most cookbooks as I have always assumed that I knew all the terms and few offered advice that was new to me. This time I am looking forward to learning new tips and techniques from this group of expert bakers. I will share the interesting bits with you on a future post!
