Hey guys. Here is the gist. I am getting married. Naturally, I am the one in charge of food. I am having a slow wedding (3days) akin to slow food. In fact, food is a MAJOR part of this slow wedding. I have a lot of ideas and will probably post food problems as they occur. So, one idea is to have lots of fresh fruit and veggies around all the time. Everything in season and as local as I can get it (it is in Arkansas). I think the theme of friendly, family, warm, easy like sunday morning would really be emphasized with fresh warm bread with basic jams, butter,s honey, balsamic spread around. Not being a bread maker and hosting a wedding in the sticks- what is the best way to make this happen.
Is there a way to score fresh live dough from a real bakery? Can you freeze the live yeast like in the popular book a while back? Do you trust shiped bread? I am looking for freshness and flavor. Whole grains and non bleached flour. A rich Semolina and the like? Am I trying to reach for a goal that is too far?
