Our first baker, millennial, and female guest Deanne Velicky proves that not all grain should be used to become beer. She explains how she started baking both savory and sweet goods and learned how to master the mother to make a perfect crusty and toothy sourdough loaf. Montclair has never seen better days with Deanne directing their bakery but we get to sample her solo creation: fresh lemon meringue doughnuts.
We get lost in the crust and find ourselves enjoying the lightly-sour and moist crumb surrounded by crisp fried and sugar, filled with lemon custard, then topped and torched with soft meringue hats that add a perfect counterpoint. Whether spelled doughnuts, doh-nuts or donuts these are the kind that deserve their own paragraph, and popup at GGBCO 3/1/2020.
The rest of the podcast is probably interesting, but the doughnuts will sell out quick. You don’t want to miss them so we’re cool if you want to listen to the rest of it in your car.
