In the JOK Kitchen with Aran Goyoaga *Giveaway*

Aran Goyoaga wrote this cookbook with recipes and stories inspired by her childhood in the Basque Country, motherhood, and living as an ex-pat.  The book is divided by season and within each chapter you will find a section for small plates and another for sweet treats.  Aran left the professional kitchen of the Ritz Carlton to stay home with her first child and she channeled her cooking into her blog, Cannelle et Vanille (cinnamon and vanilla) after the smells of her childhood.  Aran became gluten free in 2009 and began adapting all her recipes to her new lifestlye.  You can tell from her gorgeous photography that she had outdone herself.  We asked Aran a few questions to get to know her a bit better.  (Note – this book is not a kosher cookbook, but most of the recipes can be made kosher)

You have quite an impressive background cooking in a professional kitchen, do you ever miss it?

Red Star Yeast recently launched a revolutionary yeast for the home baker called Platinum Superior Baking Yeast.  Red Star says that this new yeast makes baking professional bread at home a cinch.  Your home baked bread will be lighter and rise more than any you have made before.  They say, it is particularly effective in whole grain and sweet breads, producing airy and large volume breads.

Many of us make challah weekly or at least regularly and this yeast should make your results even better.  Especially when you add whole wheat flour. I tested it out for you on my go-to, regular challah recipe where I use 50% whole wheat flour and the results were very good. Next, I would like to try it with 100% whole wheat flour.  Stay tuned in the comments on this article where I will report back.  I hope any of you that have tried this yeast will comment below with your results.
