BBA Challenge Breads -- Slideshow by The Bread Experience

In May 2009, the Bread Baker's Apprentice Challenge began. I've had lot's of fun participating in the challenge. From May through December, I made 29 of the BBA breads. There are 43 breads in the book and I'm ready to take on the rest of them.  I've been taking a break from the challenge during the Holidays, but I'll be back in full-force in January in time to start the Sourdough series.  

Right now, I'm cultivating a seed culture to make the barm (Mother Starter) for the sourdough breads.  I have a starter that I've been nurturing for the past two years but I decided to make the one from the Bread Baker's Apprentice book as well to see the difference.  Actually, I had three starters that I had been nurturing for the past two years, but decided to throw two of them out the other day to streamline things a bit.  It's time to start things anew don't you think? A new year, a new start. I don't usually name my starters, but I think maybe I'll give this one a name.  I wonder what name I should give it. Hmmm...we'll just have to see.

Since we're heading into a new year, I thought it would be fun to take a look back and see how far we've come in the BBA challenge.  I created a slideshow of all the BBA breads I've made this year.  I hope you enjoy it!
