I loved toast. Love to cook so bought a bread machine. Loathed it! Someone took me to La Brea Bakery that had just opened in Los Angeles. I wanted to make bread like that! Bought Silverton's book that summer and tried twice to make a starter. First time went bad. Second time worked.
For 4 loaves I start with 25oz starter, 2.4 lbs Spring Water, 4.4lbs Organic White Bread Flour, 1 cup Wheat Bran. After first mix, wait 20 mins, add 8tsps Sea Salt, mix higher speed, then add flavoring. Olives & Fresh Thyme or Lemon Zest and Fresh Rosemary or Fig Jam and Fennel Seeds or Fresh Dill and Chopped light sautéed Shallots. All are amazing.
