Nerdy Science in the Kitchen


I’m a bread fanatic and love baking fresh bread. I’ve kept my own sour dough starter for years and use store-bought quick rise yeast as well.

I’ve baked bread in loaf pans, on a pizza stone, and in cast iron. I used to have a bread maker back in the day, but I prefer not having that big appliance that’s mostly a one trick pony.

I’m also a connoisseur of bakeries and love to check out bakeries locally, and when I’m traveling. In fact, checking out bakeries is a great way to see a town and there’s always bread and pastries!

Here are my best articles about bread.
