1️⃣ HOMEMADE FOCACCIA 🍞 The basic yeasted Italian flatbread is to me, a lazy (and sub-par) baker, fairly the proper bread. Immediately I’m making a case for the no-knead technique: it’s labor-free and arguably produces even higher outcomes. With out the necessity to knead, we are able to shoot the hydration up as excessive as 90 %. No guesswork, simply tremendous ethereal & mushy bread.

THE RECIPE (serves 8):
450 grams all-purpose flour (or bread flour)
405 grams heat water (round 105 F, 40 C)
1 tablespoon kosher salt
2.25 teaspoons (1 packet) prompt yeast
1 teaspoon sugar
1 tablespoon (15g) olive oil

Toppings:
three tablespoons (45 g) olive oil
1 sprig contemporary rosemary
flaky kosher salt

2️⃣ RICE BREAD 米麵包. 🍚Taking a break from cookbook writing to indicate you the place my curiosities have led me these days—gluten-free bread created from rice, and rice solely! I found this technique via some Taiwanese and Japanese books I’ve learn, particularly ones by Shiori (shioris_vegan_pantry). It’s wonderful how blended rice goo can perform so just like gluten and bake into one thing with a mushy, tight but mild crumb like this. This rice bread has a definite mouthfeel, denser than common white bread however chewy and aromatic in its personal proper.

THE RECIPE:
360 g (2 cups) uncooked white rice
240 g (1 cup) water, room temp
45 g (three Tbsp) vegetable oil or vegan butter
6 g (1 tsp) salt
25 g (2 Tbsp) light-brown sugar or maple syrup
7 g (2¼ tsp) prompt yeast

DIRECTIONS:
1) Go for rice that’s naturally mushy, springy, and aromatic. I discovered the very best outcomes with short-grain Japanese and Taiwanese rice; long-grain rice (like basmati, jasmine), glutinous rice, or rice flour all give poor outcomes. Wash the rice such as you would for cooking and soak in new water for two hrs, at room temp.
