Treasures


I got this excellent cookbook in the mail a couple of days ago. Every recipe has a story to go with it about where the authors found it and learned how to make it. There are breads from all over the world. I have tried Sichuan Pepper bread with peanut sauce and it was excellent. My son, who lived on this kind of bread when he first went to China, said it tasted quite authentic.


In the same vein, I have wanted one of these bread pans for ages ever since I started baking my own bread. They are as rare as hen's teeth. Today I found two of them in the thrift shop in Winkler. I bought one but the other was still sitting there when I left if there is anyone out there who wants one. I'll be trying it out tomorrow.

I own that book! It's really good. :)
I learned to make flatbread at work because it's a worldwide staple and we did a lot of work with NGO's. I would LOVE a pot like that if you are able to get the other one. Let me know how much and I'll send the cost plus shipping. Wow!!

Wow, that one must be old and not used much if it still has the label on it. my mother has my grandmother's bread pan, but not the lid. I have a dough mixer, so I'm using different technology.

Love the book. How fun to be able to make all those different kinds of bread. And lucky you to find two pans.

Since i'm starting making my own bread, your post sounds very yummy!
I did not know about those post, they seem handy though.

I love things like this.

I really should start making my own bread!

I love baking bread-it is so homey! I used to make challah bread several Friday's of the month but have gotten out of the habit. Maybe I need to get back in the habit:)

I can't wait to find that book...I'm checking ebay tonight...and I think I'll look for a bread pan too. It looks wonderful.

What kind of pan is that for your bread? My hubby is the bread-maker (in more ways than one) and I'm always looking for a Christmas present for him. If you could give me more info on this bread bowl, I'd appreciate it. (I came from patchery menagerie and darling millie)....

My Dad's house is filled with all sorts of kitchen "antiques" like nut graters, ice shavers, candy molds, etc. I never think they are antiques or hard to find until I try to find one for myself. Some of the most useful things just aren't made anymore! How lucky you were to find the exact pan you were looking for. Cheers!
