Savory Plaited Centerpiece

Give your bread a name and tell us about your recipe.

"Bread To Be Wisconsin Wild." We used Paul Hollywood’s plaited bread recipe as a guide and then took it from there!

Would you describe yourself as a rogue baker, or do you strictly adhere to the recipe?


Tell us about how you added a Wisconsin twist to your bread creation.

We decided to add Wisconsin wild rice, Dane County Farmer’s Market green garlic and caramelized leeks to this otherwise classic 6 strand plaited loaf. We are fortunate to live in a state where wild rice grows abundantly so what better to add, protein, color and texture than this Wisconsin staple. The green garlic adds a nice background flavor and the leek gives it just a hint of onion without being to overwhelming.

How did you do?

Rocked it.
