Yogurt​ Bread

If you tried and liked my Buttermilk Bread than you will like this one as well. A plain wheat bread, refined with yogurt for extra flavor and freshness.

Buttermilk Bread

Simple wheat bread refined with buttermilk, which keeps the bread longer fresh and benefits the flavor. Its delicate-sour note makes the small but subtle difference.  

Brioche à Tête (Brioche Parisienne)

The French name: brioche à tête refers to its shape (tête means head). The classic brioche is baked in a traditional round, fluted mold with a small “head” on top.  It’s often simply called Brioche Parisienne.

Sourdough Bread with Walnuts

Sourdough begins with a combination of flour and liquid and can range from the classic starter made entirely with rye flour and water (like the one I’m sharing here with you) to a liquid batter of milk and cornmeal – with many variations in…

Pita – Bread

The soft and flat Pita bread is common in the Eastern Mediterranean and the Middle East. Baked daily several times, it serves as a side dish to many meals. It consists of a simple, slightly salted yeast dough and is traditionally baked directly on the bottom of a stone oven.
