Because that’s what it’s like waiting for this starter to take off. I know it’ll get there, just getting impatient. And not much to report otherwise. Instead, I’ll just show you this:
That’s Il Cornicione’s Basic Country Bread. He and I (and Caleb Schiff) have been talking on Twitter about this recipe, and Il Cornicione shared this loaf he just made via photo.
Caleb, of the pizzeria Pizzicletta in Flagstaff, Arizona, also was inspired by the Tartine chatter to restart his own Tartine starter.
It’s kind of cool to see the chatter of the internet spin off into real life action.
In other news, Cavanagh appears healthy and will probably star in my Tartine bread on Sunday.
