one mean, cast-iron bastard

Just a quick update on Christmas week's activities:

Flammkuchen. Thanks to my baking stone, they now come out very close to perfect.

Note to myself: fresh baker's yeast is more active than dired yeast. Much more active.

Currently on my list of things to learn: making croissants from scratch. They already taste gorgeous, but only look good until baked. Need much more training.

This year, Santa brought me a paella pan. One mean, cast-iron bastard of a paella pan, and I couldn't be happier. Recipe coming soon.

To all of you, I hope you've had a wonderful Christmas and the coming year will be full of joy, health and inspiration!
