the cult of the self-kneading bread

Linette and Clementine made an absolutely incredible loaf of bread a few nights ago. Apparently it’s a phenomenon that’s taking the post-Atkins world by storm. I haven’t verified it online, but Linette tells me that there are entire internet communities being formed around the recipe, which, from what I understand, only takes about 10 minutes, requires no kneading, and produces big, airy loafs with perfectly crunchy crusts. If you would like to enter the cult, you can find the recipe at the “New York Times.” (Other cult recommendations will be coming shortly.)

(When I say that it takes 10 minutes, I mean that it takes 10 minutes to prepare. It takes over 24 hours to rise… Sorry if I got your hopes up. It is really delightful bread though – way better than anything I have ever tasted that’s been baked at home, in a traditional oven.)

(And, yes, I made a conscious choice to write about this tonight instead of the diaper-shitting astronaut would-be killer.)

    When you said astronaut killer, I thought that you meant OJ.
