About this Cook
I'm currently a student in the Baking & Pastry Arts program at The California Culinary Academy in San Francisco, CA. I love cooking. But I think being a vegetarian has kept me from persuing a culinary degree.
My favorite things to cook
Vegetarian food. Although I do cook things with meat in it for my friends, I still like cooking vegetarian food and proving to them that it really isn't that bad when it's done right.
My favorite family cooking traditions
The holidays were always big. There was always so much food that you ate until you couldn't eat anymore then you eat again then take more home with you.
My cooking triumphs
Hmm...I'm always surprised by something. I'm finding that I'm better at making bread from scratch than I thought I was.
My cooking tragedies
Not finding the design I wanted for my Wedding Cake final in school.
Recipe Reviews 1 review
Biga or any other starter isn't something for the occasional baker. This recipe is simple and worked perfectly. I took it out of the refrigerator 6 hours prior to using it for ciabatta to get it to room temp and to increase the yeast activity. The ciabatta came out great!
