TWD – Tuesdays with Dorie
Last week on NPR I heard an interview with cookbook author Dorie Greenspan. She discussed her latest book, Baking with Julia, as well as a blog called Tuesdays with Dorie.
The blog started back in 2008 by a woman named Laurie who received Dorie’s book, Baking: From My Home to Yours, as a Christmas gift. Her goal was to cook one recipe a week until she cooked her way through the book. On her first blog post she asked if anyone else would like to join her. The bakers and bloggers finished baking their way through the book in December 2011.
Well, the Tuesdays with Dorie blog/baking group is about to embark on Dorie’s newest book, Baking with Julia, and I signed up to join along. I ordered the cookbook, which is needed in order to bake the recipes. Rules and sign-up can be found here and here for anyone interested in joining. Each month 2 recipes are chosen and made, and posts go up on Tuesdays. The monthly schedule is listed on the site.
I’ve heard Dorie Greenspan on NPR a number of times on a few different radio programs, including The Splendid Table. She sounds like the sweetest woman, definitely someone I would love to have over for coffee or tea and bake away the day. So, this blog seems like the perfect way to get a bit of Dorie Greenspan in my kitchen. It’s just too bad I missed out on the first book the group baked through.
I cannot wait to get started.
