Oh the joy of baking, not the book, but the prolonged cooking of food by dry heat acting by convection (according to Wikipedia). The roles of bakers and pastry chefs have been blurred over the years, so on today’s THE FOOD SEEN, we have Shuna Lydon, the pastry chef at Peels, and Jeremy Shapiro, bread baker extraordinaire, to help us redefine the roles of bakers and chew over the current state of baked goods and grains. p.s. read both Shuna’s and Jeremy’s blogs for wonderfully inspiring writing and recipes! This episode was sponsored by Hearst Ranch-the nations largest single source supplier of grassfed and grass-finished beef.
