BWJ September Nominations

Would anyone want to have “Brioche Month” in September?   I noticed that we have two recipes that each call for a half-batch of the standard brioche dough: Brioche Tart with White Secret Sauce (p. 386) and Twice-Baked Brioche (p. 198).   We could knock out both by making one batch of dough, dividing it in two, and either baking off both recipes at the same time or freezing half the dough after the first rise to make the second recipe later.

If that doesn’t sound any good to you, please nominate one sweet/breakfast recipe and one savory/bread recipe (with page numbers).

You can check out the Completed Recipes page if you need a reminder of all the things we’ve done already, or this if you want to see what’s left.

BWJ August Schedule

Here are the BWJ August recipes!  We have a choice for the first week, since these two petits fours are almost exactly the same (just cut into different shapes).  Feel free to pick one or make some of each out of the cake.

August 4, 2015- Miniature Florentine Squares, p 268-270 and/or Glazed Mini-Rounds, p 271-272

August 18, 2015- Pita Breads, p 154-155
