Get excited everyone! I’ve been busy over the last few months testing recipes and creating new ones for my upcoming book, The New England Kitchen. Last week I made the most amazing bread. This particular recipe is from Mr. Bendza. He was my father’s best friend. Two years ago Mr. Bendza’s cancer returned; he knew the end was near. Mr. Bendza was an outstanding baker. Since he knew I was writing a cookbook and was very passionate about baking and cooking, he gave me his entire recipe book. Every recipe is something he created from scratch. Don’t you just love finding recipe’s uniquely crafted from scratch? He was phenomenal with baking breads. As I started to test the recipes, I realized there were no measurements by the ingredients. Since he had already passed, I did not have the opportunity to approach him about it. I’ve had to test and guess on each recipe. Here’s one I think I’ve found the perfect combination to.
