A short story of bread, oil and vinegar

Thanks to eenie meenie for the gift basket! Two of many food items; A a bottle of olive oil and a bottle of aged balsamic vinegar. :woohoo:

So it was time to crack those bottles open after making two bouls of sourdough bread.

Reflection, meditation, one mind.

Whack the bread and start dipping.


Oh My Gosh! Thick silky smoothness, oaky, sweet, nutty, wine, raisin, zing of vinegar, a hint of molasses and then a tart green olive peppery note from rich olive oil. WOW! :woohoo:

I'm going for more.

    The only thing that could make that better Clay would be some garden fresh tomatos, basil and fresh mozzarella!

    Very nice. One of my favorite non-carnivorous snacks. I couldn't help but notice that you double dipped!

    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

  • :)
    Pretty pics with outstanding ingredients!
    Please tell us more about your sourdough bread.
  • :blush: Bread must be from your post below!
    Recipe on line or gotta be tight with Sir Egret?

    Clay, I can almost taste the bread! :)

    That balsalmic should only be used on the finest and it certainly looks as if you've followed through with the Egret bread. I never knew vinegar, olive oil, and bread could look so beautiful.

    Reminds me of your visit. :)
