Give your bread a name and tell us about your recipe.
Garlic Scape Walnut Pesto Braided Loaf: this is a braided loaf with a garlic scape pesto with garlic scapes from my garden and the local farmers market. I combined them with basil from my garden, walnuts, and the always amazing Wisconsin Sartori Black Pepper Bellavitano cheese. Braided them into a French loaf and then shaved more of the cheese on top.
Would you describe yourself as a rogue baker, or do you strictly adhere to the recipe?
A little of both. For baking I like a good precision base recipe that I can add or modify with my choices.
Tell us about how you added a Wisconsin twist to your bread creation.
I used garlic scapes which are in season in Wisconsin right now, ingredients from my home garden, and incorporated a delicious award winning Wisconsin cheese.
How did you do?
