Bread boxes for the modern kitchen

Bread baking much like pie crust has always been pretty intimidating to me. I consider myself to be a pretty good baker, with the occasional total disaster, but when it comes to making a starter and my own bread it’s so scientific it makes me nervous. For Christmas I was gifted “Artisan Sourdough Made Simple” By Emilie Raffa and decided that 2018 would be the year that I finally got over this fear and got to baking. I made my first starter during the first week of January and though it failed the float test after 8 days I decided to bake a loaf anyways. My first loaf didn’t rise much, was super dense, but the flavor was perfect. My second had the same outcome, but my third after trial and error and a little Rye flour came out perfect.

I grew up with breadboxes and baskets, but as an adult never thought to have one for my own home. I bake a few times a week, making things from quick breads to cookies, and thought it was time to get some pretty storage for them on the counter that would, also extend their longevity. I ordered this one by Wesco in white, but here are some others that are both functional and beautiful.
