100 Loaves of Solitude: baking traditional bread from every country in Europe

This has nothing to do with the Gabriel García Márquez classic. (Who knows, though? I only got a few pages in; perhaps bread has a starring role further in.)

100 Loaves of Solitude is my new project. I’m baking a traditional bread recipe from every country* in Europe, more recipes from countries with exciting bread cultures like Germany and Russia.

Some highlights I’m looking forward to:

*Only countries with a population of over one million. Because, San Marino? Get out! The exception is Iceland, despite its palty population of 300,000, because I harbour fantasies of travelling there one day.

  1. Try Dan Lepard’s ‘The Handmade Loaf’ and Jane Mason’s ‘All You Knead is Bread’ – lots of great European recipes in both. Look forward to reading about your journey!

  2. Fantastic project! 😀
    Have you tried Andrew Whitley’s Bread Matters? It’s a fantastic read, hugely informative, and the only bread book that made me laugh out loud!
