Hi folks! I've spent this period of global pandemic and quarantine here in the Catskills (in addition to such activities like gardening TOO MUCH and sobbing) launching a bread-baking cooking series on YouTube called BREB CLASS.
It's been produced by my lovely and talented husband Rob Dubbin. We created a four-episode series that teaches you how to make sourdough step-by-step and how to make fun stuff like pancakes and crackers from the discard. It's been so awesome hearing from bakers who've been figuring out sourdough; I've gotten photos of brebs made as far away as Spain and New Zealand.
I hope to make more BREB CLASS eventually, though as of June 12, 2020, I am pausing the project indefinitely. I need to spend some time resting, healing in various ways (including baking breb!), reading books, looking off into the distance and loudly sighing, etc., and being out in the streets supporting the movement for black lives as much as I can.
- I have at last deleted my Instagram account. I'm too tired of Facebook being so wrong about so much.
- I'm also going to stop posting on this blog (mostly trying to simplify things, reduce the volume of stressful nonsense, to use a word my friend Hannah coined)
- If you're eager to receive updates about me, my assistant Alex will still occasionally tweet on my behalf
- I expect I will still send out a newsletter when I've got news to share; I encourage you to subscribe if you are interested in hearing about whatever is next from me.
Love to you all! Black lives matter! Black disabled lives matter! Black trans lives matter! Defund the police!
Ishmall Had Won!,
p.s. Here's a photo of me being happy as heck the other day when my entire garden was at last planted (ish... the work goes on):
