Christmas is coming, it’s hard to believe that 2020 is almost at its end. And while this year has certainly been challenging, the arrival of Christmas brings with it the familiar smells of baked goods and Christmas cookies.
It’s that time of the year again. Grandmothers and master chefs unknowingly compete with one another to create the best Christmas cakes that people of all ages adore so much. While some people enjoy a magical snowy Christmas, in Bali, the joy of the holiday season comes straight from the fires of the oven and stove top.
In the bakery world, any plain bread that has been prepared with dough infused with the best quality yeast and flour (in addition to love) is beautiful. The browning crust and the expansion of volume appears as if all the flavor goodness within it is bursting through the seams. A plain bread with no added flavor is as magical as it gets.
