My second attempt at Jim Lahey’s recipe.
This time, sticking more to the guidelines, the dough sat for 24 hours till visible bubbling on the surface. I used strong white flour instead of plain flour.
Instead of room temperature water, I used warm water. The dough noticeably rose a lot more than the previous attempt, and the end product is a lot more softer and visually whiter.
I still think the dough could rise a little more, so I will find a warmer spot in my house next time for the dough to sit.
First attempt at making bread using Jim Lahey’s no-kneed recipe.
- 400g seived plain flour
- 1/2 tsp. dry active yeast
- 1 1/4 tsp. salt
- 300mL room temperature water
I let the dough sit for roughly 30 hours. Noted that the dough didn’t raise substantially, so will attempt again but will try and mix in some warm water instead of room temperature water. The texture of the interior is heavy and flexible.
Heavy taste, delicious plain.
Tried poaching some sausages in beer tonight. Simmered in lager and onion for roughly 10 minutes, and grilled to brown to finish. The sausages were more succulent than usual which is great, and the beer and onion can be re-purposed afterwards for some onion gravy.
Got a Molcajete, so I decided to make some salsa.
- 1 beef tomato
- 3 finger chillies
- 2 plum tomatoes
- bunch of coriander
- 1-3 cloves of garlic
- 1/4 chopped onion
- salt to taste
- Chop tomatoes and roast, along with garlic cloves and finger chillies
- Grind garlic cloves and chillies in grinder until paste
- Grind tomatoes into garlic/chilli paste
- Add diced onion and chopped coriander to grinder and stir till evenly mixed
Trying out openFrameworks as a possible replacement to processing.org for my visualization stuff. Here’s a basic orthographic isometric scene.
Cropped view of city centre. Tweaking my code. Still need to make colours more prominent.
More experimentation with GPS and image processing data from Norwich. Probably need to change scale and focus on the denser parts of the map to get the full effect.
Experimenting with the HSV colour space using an old sample image.
Work in progress. ‘Detects’ and plots journeys taken by flickr users in a given area. Between waypoints it interpolates the colour between the average colours of the photographs the user has taken. This is a ‘small’ scale example depicting Sheffield city centre. More soon.
