The Art of Perfect Bread Baking - June Kessler
Genre - Cooking, Baking
Rating - G

Making bread requires little more than your hands, an oven and patience. The recipe for success is simple; time and warmth are all it takes to transform a few basic ingredients into springy silky dough that bakes to a crackly, crusted loaf. It is like most things- easy when you know how, with practice making perfect. If we had to choose one single phrase that I feel is essential to bread making, it would be this; bread is alive, growing entity and, the product of it’s ingredients and surroundings; it responds to its environment- “treat the rising dough as if it were alive’’ While we advocate the use of scales, warmers and thermometers, remember that observation is the baker’s traditional tool. The more you make bread, the better your bread will be.
Essential Ingredients and Techniques
Flour is the main ingredients of most bread, accounting for about three-quarters of the finished loaf. The flour you choose will give your bread its individual character. The choice of flour affects not only the quality of the baked bread but also the bread baking process , Flour will absorb more, or less, liquid depending on the verity of wheat that it was made from, the place were it was harvested, and the way in which it was milled. Such variables are compounded by the humidity in the air – on a damp day, flour will adsorb less liquid than on a dry day. The quantities of liquid given in the recipe can never be more than guidelines. Our mixing technique suggests that you hold back a proportion of liquid and add as needed. The method acts as a safeguard against overly wet dough and the consequent need to add extra flour; which upsets the balance among flour, salt and yeast. If you require a little more liquid than stated in the recipe, do not hesitate to add it; your aim is to produce dough conforming to the consistency specified in the recipe, be it firm, soft or wet. Observing; and understanding the condition of your dough, and what it requires, is the key to successful bread baking.

Since dawn of humankind's awareness, we have recorded history in the form of drawings and writings, developing habits of storytelling to express what we see. Though what man sees and how he interprets are not always the same.
Loki, Asgardian god of Norse mythology, known as the God of Mischief and Trickery, is victim of historical and literary misconception - one who is pictured as a god who loves to wreak havoc and leave behind strings of misfortune. Unsung Giant is a story to lay all wrong accounts to rest.
Unsung Giant is a tale of an unlikely Asgardian hero, torn between doing what his mischievous
ways demand, and what is expected of him, being the son of a King. Loki, since gianthood, has always been branded as one who does not think for the good of others. The Nine Worlds, including our own, are on the brink of destruction, and only one can bring about salvation.
What would you do, if the power was in your hands? "Loki has both the Mjollnir and the teningur lifsins; two very powerful weapons he could keep and use for his own purposes. The thought of wielding such power is very enticing, even for one who has a strong resolve."
As the book goes, "Even the All-Father could not help but beam at his younger son's impulsive nature. Well, Loki would not be Loki if he became insipidly predictable." Loki and Thor's filial affiliation are finally put to the test, from birth through to Ragnarok, end of the Nine Worlds, as we discover the true nature of this misunderstood giant.
