So, how did this Lucille Ball moment come about?
I’m on a bread baking kick. It’s black bean burger night and those patties needed buns! So I commenced baking French bread. You start by making a Pâte Fermentée, which is a small batch of dough that that sits for a day or two and increases flavor. You then add more flour, yeast, salt and water to the existing dough to finish it off.
Smarty pants here zoned out and added the flour to the Pâte Fermentée without water. As my Kitchen Aid started to stir…well…the flour went everywhere.
Expletives were uttered. Wardrobe change, stat.
