I just noticed in the header to the bread contest that the editors are looking for "impressive loft." This would seem to exclude fine-crumbed, more densely-textured loaf breads, referred to by some as traditional American sandwich breads. Is that correct? Thank you. ;o)

This is not April Fool. I just read that Harper Collins is shutting down it's HarperStudio imprint scarcely a week after Bob Miller was brought in to head it up.

Bob Miller created the imprint more than a year ago, so although he wasn't there that long, it was certainly longer than a week! Harper Collins is a big place -- most of the HS books will likely be absorbed by editors at HC. Not to worry.

I should have remembered the part about him founding the imprint...

YAAY! Very excited for the yeast bread! It's going to be a great challenge-and a delicious one for the days following (sandwiches, bruschetta, grilled cheese, paninis...salivating :-)

OOOOh Yes! a little rain and a little sun and we have asparagus! Lucky me ...the former vineyard manager planted a bed of asparagus which I enjoy .You can almost watch them grow!

I have weather envy! I've tried to grow asparagus twice and we just get too much fog and coolness for them I guess where we are. They do great in my kitchen window until I plant them outside.

How exciting! It must be so wonderful to have asparagus straight out of the garden! It must taste wonderful!

My New Years' resolutions for 2009 included getting my hands back into dough and studying bread chemistry. Mostly it was a success but I never did get to try Jim Lahey's "no knead" method, which includes an 18 hour rise. Unfortunately this week I'm traveling and doubt that I'll have 18 consecutive hours to observe yeast at work. But we'll see what happens.

Ah! Thanks for choosing a veggie theme! Can't wait to see what people will do with both.

You're very welcome. We were looking forward to a veggie theme as much as you all were!

I'll be on vacation this week (Anyone know any good restaurants on Kauai?), but I'll look forward to testing the editors' picks next week when I'm back home. Have a great week!

Does bread mean rolls are are we loaf-centric?

Great question -- we should have clarified. We mean savory.

I'm down with this, but watch for more unconventional weapons. I may go all El Bulli...
