The Bread Makes the Meal recipe contest has ended but not my commitment to helping you bake delicious, satisfying breads at home. Visit the Bread Baking page of my site for links or find bread recipes here.

Here is the text from the original Bread Makes the Meal celebration:

This fall baking season, I’m launching a month long celebration of baking bread at home­—Bread Makes the Meal.  Each week, for the next five weeks, I will share some of my favorite recipes, tips and tricks to entice you to make bread at home.  (Here’s the recipe for Week One, Irish Wheaten Bread. Week Two, Butter Topped Toasting White Sandwich Bread.  Week Three Pumpkin Rosemary Dinner Rolls. Week Four Country Wheat and Rye Boule.)

Bread Makes the Meal comes from a chapter title in Charlie van Over’s book The Best Bread Ever.  (The chapter brings together all the things you can do with bread: from making sandwiches to canapés and bread salads.)  The topic feels timely.  It reminds me of the importance of meals shared with family and friends.  In these unsettled times, don’t we all need something simple and restorative like bread and a meal to bring us together?

Emile Henry National Homemade Bread Day Contest

Speaking of friends, the team at Emile Henry is joining me in this celebration. They have put together a marvelous giveaway tied to National Home Made Bread Day, November 17, 2016. You can win this baker’s dream kit.
