Bread Storage Thread

Hey everyone. What do you all do for storing homemade bread? I have been wrapping in wax paper and storing in brown paper bags. It holds fairly well for a couple days. I haven't wanted to use plastic because it makes the bread chewy. Refrigeration affects the flavor because the bread absorbs other stuff in the fridge. I'm not above using a SIMPLE additive, nothing too crazy, but just to make it hold for some additional time.

I'm using lahey's bread method and his recommended storage. In an email before Jacob mentioned lecithin to retain some of the moisture. Love to get a discussion going.

Cut side down on the board for the 3-4 days that it's good, after that it's crouton/breadcrumb time.

Depending on the bread I'm making, I will add either honey or barley malt (health food store).  They both help to retain moisture in breads so they don't go stale as quickly. 

If I cut into the loaf the day of baking, then I put the cut side down on a wooden cutting board. 

To freeze, I wrap in heavy duty foil and a zip lock with all of the air squeezed out.
Otherwise, you're doing fine!

so just wanted to post this Puttanesca sauce. 

Man it is such a great dish. Lovely change of pace from the common sweet sauce. 

 Doesn't look like much But it makes the house smell like the sea and it sure is good.

I'm currently listening to your newest - SCS 032. In my podcast app (Doggcatcher), I have your feed set to keep all episodes. And I just noticed that I had only 31 episodes.

So I checked the episode listings on the website to try to find the missing episode and saw that their is apparently no episode 030!

While that resolved the discrepency between the numbering of the episodes and the number of episodes I have saved, it made me curious:

What happened to episode 030?

Hello one and all, 

 

I have just finished watching the pan seared salmon video on YouTube - thank you Chef Jacob and read the associated show notes.      

I was wondering if you served salmon as a main - what sort of sides and/or  vegetables could I serve it with?  Thank you for your time.   

I see that you used seseme seeds and some herbs that I am unfamiliar with.     

Just thinking about my vegetarian friend who only eats fish, chicken and turkey.  I thought salmon might be a good thing to serve.   

 

Thanking you :-)

So my question is this

 

I have friends who are coming for dinner - and I usually do dumplings with pork mince, however she does not eat pork.  I posted this picture on facebook earlier today, and she asked for the recipe which is :

I have friends coming for dinner in a couple of weeks, and the lady eats vegetarian dishes mainly but she also enjoys chicken and fish dishes.   

Her husband - eats anything and everything.  

What is your favourite chicken or fish dish - something that presents well on the plate.   

It is the end of summer in NZ - so - if you could think about that in your reply.   I would be interested in trying something new.  

She is an accomplished cook - and usually serves many little dishes when they host.   I would be very interested in hearing from you.
