Well, I attempted the recipe, burned the loaf black, and almost gave up on baking forever. Luckily Danny talked me off the ledge and I tried again on Sunday (after purchasing a pretty covered baking dish from my second-favorite-place-on-earth World Market), and wow–this bread really is amazing. And this lemon roasted chicken with vegetables could not have been better.
There is something to be said about trying and trying again.
Our very first L.A. dinner party was a huge success and a small affair, with just one special guest, our dear friend Dan, also the fabulous photographer. We ate outside. We had a blast.
Here’s to a happy week.
