September Cooking Carnival 2016 where I posted 26 different soups; &

A to Z Baking around the World where I blogged about 26 different breads, one for each letter of the alphabet.

    A to Z Baking Around the World – A Recap

    April Roundup

    The April Mega Marathon, Baking around the world, was about baking 26 dishes, one from each alphabet A-Z from different countries of the world without a repeating a country more than twice. I had chosen to bake only breads for the entire month which was a thrilling and satisfying experience. Before commencing on the roundup, there are certain things I found interesting. In this one month, I have blogged about-

    • 26 Bread Recipes
    • From 22 different countries
    • 5 different types of breads – stuffed breads, bread with toppings, braided breads, decorative breads, loaves, artisan breads,
    • Using 4 different types of flours – All purpose flour, Rye flour, Whole wheat flour, Cornmeal, Buckwheat flour
    • With 6 different leavening agents – baking powder, instant yeast, wholewheat sourdough, potato sourdough, all purpose flour sponge, rye flour starter
    • Trying 9 different methods -regular instant yeast and two risings, one rising, a day old starter, 2 day old starter, an hour old sponge starter, baking in a cold oven, baking with ice cubes, baking with steam, baking with a glaze / roomal on the dough

    As you can see I had a fabulous time and learned so much from this whole experience. Of course, there are other things I wanted to accomplish like using more flours like spelt, finger millet, etc. and some other methods which I had to give up due to lack of time and plan. But overall I am reasonably satisfied with this month long blogging. This is my second mega marathon. My first one was in September when I blogged about 26 different soups. Now that I think about it, the combination of soups and breads is a classic. Now, on to the round-up
