Naked challah (poppy seeds are gross)...Mazel tov! My first time baking bread and i went for the single braid. And oops, I remembered to take pictures 3/4 of the way through the four hour process. Sometimes I like food stories, food allegory. It wasn't as revelatory as I imagined but it's fun. Like knitting-fun. Like it takes longer that you'd expect and the end result, is sometimes worth it/sometimes not. But you get to eat at the end. I shared it with my family and they liked everything except the jewish part (which confused them).

P.S. I wish I could be there for this. The Woodstock of food haha.

I made Challah last semester and all of the braiding went away when I cooked it:

Strange. And I thought making good challah came with my genes!
