Dead Dough Project, Day 1

In today's Breads class today, we began working on our dead dough project; dead dough is basically dough with no yeast. It's sort of like working with really thick clay. We use different seasonings for coloring; for example, spinach powder turns the dough green while paprika can be used to turn the dough red. Chef was really helpful in assisting me to get my project off to a good start, and I made some really good progress on day one. I don't consider myself a creative, artistic person but I really wanted to challenge myself to do something that would stretch my talents and creativity and it's off to a good start.

I want to keep you in suspense so all I'm going to say is that the final project is going to look phantastic. Stay tuned for Thursday's finished product!
