Pain d’ Epi
The guests are gone and the food was a success!
Yesterday I wrote about my preparation for lunch guests today. I made Wild Rice Soup, Pain d’ Epi, and Red Velvet Cake. The food was a hit. I think everyone was a little surprised that I had made the bread. It was pretty enough that they assumed it was store bought. I think at least half the people here will be going out to purchase their own copy of Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day. They were certainly smitten with the bread and when I told them there wasn’t any kneading involved they were hooked. To find out more about Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day, click here.
The Red Velvet Cake was a hit too. When asked what flavor Red Velvet is, I was hard pressed to answer. With just a hint of chocolate, the buttermilk and vanilla it’s hard to put your finger on the flavor, so I explained that Red Velvet is it’s own unique flavor. I won’t wait another 25+ years to make this recipe. You will find the recipe here.
