mexican bread is the shit, bro.
there is one specially they call tomato for some reason??? it's surface is pink and covered in coconut, it's has like a small volcano shape with whipped cream and jam on the top.
Is pan dulce easy to make?
The grocery store nearest me makes some shitty pan dulce and the one with the good shit is pretty far.
i made pan de muerto for the day of the dead. it was pretty good.
I've baked bread for years, but almost all of it is from the French and Italian traditions. I feel like I'm missing out on a lot of great stuff.
Could a more cosmopolitan person give me a list of some must try bread from around the world? Or just a link with some more exotic breads. I want to start making some things I haven't already made 100 times.
You need to try some moroccan pita bread from Africa. It's pretty good.
these are bretty good, but pumpkin empanadas are my fucking jam, senpai
Mexican baking comes from French traditions, especially during the Porfirio years when he tried to Frenchify México. Bolillos are basically little baguettes. Most people in México don't bake at home they go to the panadería (boulangerie) to get their bread.
I love the sweet cheese empanadas, and the various fruit ones. The ginger puerquitos are also good.
The only thing I like are the puerquitos and the polvorones. I don't like anything else because they're dry and simply taste like sugar. They're meant to be dipped into a drink but I like my baked goods to stand alone.
Mexican bread does not last, by mid day it already tastes like ass. I don't know enough about bread to understand why this is, but when I first moved to Mexico I got laughed at for hoarding the stuff and taking it home to eat later, only when I tasted it later did I understand why.
If I had only ever tasted four-hour-old conchas I'd hate them too.
