Inspired by conversations on the Food52 Hotline, we're sharing tips and tricks that make navigating all of our kitchens easier and more fun.
Today: In one 4-minute video, KatieQ’s mom gives us so many helpful, poignant tidbits on baking challah.
You know someone is an expert in the kitchen when she knows exactly what 1 teaspoon of salt looks like in her hand—and KatieQ’s mom knows. Watch as KatieQ interviews her mom about making sour cream challah step-by-step. The bread comes together so naturally in her mom’s hands that we think she might be a bread whisperer. And it’s obvious that she takes great pleasure in making it: “Certain people just do things that are comforting, centering activities, and I would say bread baking is one of those activities for me.”
What's your go-to bread recipe? Do you have any particular breadmaking tips to share?
