Quick update: Artisan Breads Everyday, the book so many of you tested recipes for, was just announced as a nominee for this year's James Beard Cookbook Award in the Baking and Desserts category. It's a huge honor and we're up against some stiff competition (go to www.jamesbeard.org for the full list of nominees) Some really great books in our category didn't even get nominated, so I'm really blown away. Wow, my head is buzzing! The winners will be announced on May 1st in NYC, so keep your fingers crossed and what will be will be.
More soon, but I wanted to get this out to you since so many of you have been on this wild, crazy ride with me for the past few years. Onward....
PS I will have a report on the Asheville Bread Festival (last Saturday) later this week.
