BBA Challenge

My friend Nicole started the BBA challenge on her blog Pinch My Salt.  The idea was to bake through the formulas in The Bread Baker’s Apprentice by Peter Reinhart.  Her challenge was to go through the formulas in order at whatever time frame you wanted.  I didn’t join her challenge right away, but as I began to read through her posts about her breads I became more intrigued.  What put me over the edge, is when she brought along some focaccia to share on a visit to LA.  For my own challenge, I bended the rules a bit and am skipping around the formulas.

I’m going to list the formula’s on this page and as I complete them link to my posts about them.  There are no recipes in any my posts, for that you’ll need to get the book!
