Sweet, Sweet Napa
I love Nina's blog, Sweet Napa in which she documents her experiences on the 30 week baking and pastry program at the Culinary Institute in Napa. Because I sometimes wonder whether maybe I should I have taken up a career in the kitchen instead of in film, I can now live vicariously through her. (Nina worked in the film industry, too, before making the change to baking).
Her latest post, is an account of a practical exam in which the students make hearth bread and rolls. Seeing as I am usually only able to bake one kind of bread, I am totally impressed with Nina's wonderful-looking ciabatta and the other breads the students made. Check out Sweet Napa and you might even have a sudden desire to purchase a banneton.
