World Bread Day: My Hubby bakes an Italian Bread with Semolina and Olive Oil

Italienisches Brot mit Weizengrieß und Olivenöl

You may have wondered why I barely ever introduce bread on my baking blog as I do today with this Italian bread with semolina and olive oil. Yes, there are a few recipes, such as this farmer’s bread, these Danish buns with yoghurt, or homemade croissants. You may think that I mainly eat cakes and cookies, but that is definitely not true. There is a very simple reason why I barely publish bread recipes. The reason is my beloved hubby who is the master of bread-baking. He even has baking running in his blood, his grandfather was the baker of the entire village. So you can probably imagine that he is very good at baking bread, much better than me. Well, at least today. His beginnings were rather humble, I distinctly recall when I told him about the fact that yeast likes it warm and cozy. I also remember when we made our first yeast bread together. He very awkwardly punched the bread and asked me how I knew when the right consistency was reached.

But soon after his humble beginnings he transformed to an excellent bread baker. He works in IT, he is a computer scientist and for that reason he did a lot of research on bread baking, he did experiements and in general loves a very scientific approach to baking. One blogger who definitely contributed to him becoming a master is Lutz from the blog Plötzblog (in German). Lutz also has an extremely scientific approach to baking, he even tells you exactly at which temperature the bread has to rise. His precise language and very scientific recipes were music to the ears of my hubby.

Healthy Farmer’s Bread

Bauernbrot

Bread is a huge thing in Germany, in case you didn’t know. The one thing Germans miss the most when living abroad is bread. We do love bread. My grandpa always says bread is very precious to him. When I spent a year in Canda after highschool, I started to bake my own bread after a while. I hated the squishy Canadian bread. I wanted something with whole wheat and rye, something which filled me up and kept me going for a long time.
