She/he is a person who loves anything having to do with flour, butter, sugar, yeast (or rice flour, tofu and agave for some of us! hee!) and the opportunity to better their baking skills
This is the most recent description that I have read about the DaringBakers.
After months and months of drooling over the pictures of many daring bakers blogs, I decided that it was time to join in on the fun. So I requested to be a member, and the next month I was given the challenge (recipe).
When I got the recipe, I was wondering what I got myself into. Julia Child? French Bread? I copied and pasted the recipe into a word document, and it was 14 pages long. I gasped. But, I was determined to make an attempt. I set aside President's Day to make the bread since I didn't have to work. And I was glad I did. I started at 11am and it was finished (but not ready to eat) at 9:00pm.
I have to say, the recipe was not at all difficult, and the 14 pages were more explicatory than anything else. The rising time, is what took the longest, but preparing the dough was fairly simple.
I would like to thank Breadchick of The Sour Dough and Sara of I like to Cook for giving me the opportunity to brag about making my first french bread. : )
I am so proud to have completed my first challenge, and I am even more proud to be a part of this wonderful group of foodies.
