Slighty wet and no splitting during baking.

Slighty wet and no splitting during baking. Submitted by Loki3118 on April 24, 2019 - 9:12pm. Hello,I've been trying my best to master the art of baking a good sour dough loaf, however I keep running into issues with the bake. I am following Ken's FWSY recipe book, using a le creuset Dutch oven for my baking vessel but every loaf I bake seem to be slightly too moist, they get better after they sit and dry out for a day or after a quick toast, and they aren't splitting on top despite...

Inside Saint-Julien de Brioude

Brace yourselves for a few church-y posts. I probably spent between five and ten minutes inside the church, so this is not an in-depth photo study, nor do I have any idea of the history or significance of what I was looking at most of the time. But no matter. It was pretty. Looking up the central aisle of the nave toward the altar. That's a tour group seated around their guide. We didn't get even one drop of the rain that was predicted to fall all day on Tuesday. I was frustrated because I put...

The back side

The view from behind the church of Saint-Julien de Brioude gives visitors a better idea of the whole building thanks to a wide plaza. While Ken looked around inside the church, Tasha and I took a walk around back. I was surprised when the narrow medieval streets opened out onto this space. Jesus hangs out behind the church. There were plenty of people around because the Saturday open-air market was nearby, but I still managed to get a photo with no people in it. After a few minutes we walked b...

Notre Dame de Paris

By now everyone, or nearly everyone, has heard or seen reports of the fire that destroyed the roof and spire of the cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris. Ken and I watched it live on television last evening, mesmerized by the spectacle, sickened by the horror, and emotionally exhausted by the near loss of one of the most famous and familiar of the monuments in a city we've both come to love. An April river cruise in 2018, a view of the cathedral from the east. Those firefighters did hard battle ag...

Oh snow!

This photo is not here but in the mountains south of Le Puy-en-Velay, taken more than a month ago. We found many of these little patches of snow on our excursions, laying low in shady places. Most of winter's snow was already gone, except on the higher peaks, which were quite white. Snow still hanging on in a roadside ditch near Arlempdes. We are not expecting any snow, but the low temperatures forecast for this weekend are at or below freezing. That's not good news for the grape growers; the ...

Oddly familiar video game tunes

Did you know that Ken's theme from Street Fighter II is a bit infringey-whingey when it comes to a Cheap Trick song from the Top Gun soundtrack? Somehow I went for decades without noticing this—or any of the other infringey-whingey examples offered in this set of "Video game themes that sound familiar." Granted, not all of them are quite so cut and dry as the Capcom lift. Many of the soundalikes emerge from a very specific period in the early 1990s. It might just be the stuff that the video's...

Les portes

Here are a few of the doors I saw when we walked around the cathedral in Le Puy. I was impressed by the fancy iron work that adorned some of them. Which would you choose? Door Number One? The "freeze" we were expecting didn't happen, and it looks like everything made it without damage. The threat of a freeze or frost still exists. Officially, the risk of frost ends in mid May. Conventional wisdom says not to plant seedlings out until then. There's also a saying: En avril, ne te découvre pas d'...

Inside the cathedral

Ken finished his quick look inside the cathedral of Le Puy-en-Velay and it was my turn. It's a big place, but without the soaring volumes of a gothic cathedral. The massive dark stone gives it a heavy feel, almost bulky. Still, there was enough light from the stained glass windows that I could snap a few photos inside. The nave, looking toward the altar. I did a quick walk around the nef (nave) and up to the autel (altar) and chœur (choir) before heading back out to meet up with Ken and Tasha....

Up to the cathedral

Once we made it up the hill to the cathedral, we faced two steep staircases to reach the entrance. A little more effort and we were on the porch looking westward. The west front of the cathedral in Le Puy-en-Velay. The front doors of the cathedral were locked, and the stair to the cloister was gated shut. I waited on the porch with Tasha while Ken went around the south side looking for an entrance. Looking westward from the cathedral's porch. He found the entrance near the transept and went ...

And then she said

I don’t know if all of you know this, but the comments on blog posts (at least here) are, generally speaking- better than the post itself.  I don’t know how it happened, but there’s a lot of cleverness and entertainment going on in there. Over the years, I’ve come to believe that if one person types it, at least 20 people were thinking it, so let’s see what’s happening down there, shall we?
