I had a thought today.
It’s a very quiet, snowy Sunday.
You might know that I bake. A lot. I have my favorite recipes, but try new ones all the time. I have a sourdough starter (with no name), plenty of yeast, and a lot of King Arthur flour.
Feeling up for a new challenge, I pulled a few bread cookbooks off the shelf. Cookbooks that I haven’t looked at in quite in a while. I decided to try a new baguette recipe. It’s on its first rise.
During the kneading, I was talking to a friend and mentioned that I was using a cookbook. And she mentioned she had some cookbooks out. And I realized that I got 2 new cookbooks as gifts recently (Piometry from my kids and The Cookie Collection from my Reddit Secret Santa. Pretty great gifts. And top it off with what I bought myself recently, Dessert Person along with the groovy apron that Claire partnered with Alex Mills to create.
All this to say that I’ve been thinking about cookbooks lately and I was curious to know if you were, too. Well, the global you. And so, I ran a query and you know what? You are. We are. Cookbooks are in again.
