If you really want to learn how to cook, then you need to practice the concepts taught in this lesson. We've compiled some "edible exercises" along with some supporting recipes that will help reinforce what was taught in this lesson.
Start by making a batch of lean dough by using the Simple Baker’s Bread Formula as shown in the lesson. Shape the dough into a baguette and bake.
As you are learning to make and bake bread, understand that it takes lots of practice and plenty of tweaking to get consistent results. As you make the bread, it is useful to take notes throughout the entire process so you can compare and/or make adjustments the next time around, if needed. The only way you’re going to get better at bread making is to practice over and over again until you become completely familiar with what to look and feel for.
Even though the ingredients may differ, all yeast doughs go through relatively the same stages of breadmaking. Try making one of the recipes below, paying close attention to each stage.
