A Simple Poolish Recipe


A poolish is a way of making tastier bread by emulating a quick sourdough starter via overnight fermentation. It's not a sourdough per se, but it's better than using only commercial yeast.

For my breads, I do not use any specialized bread flour–I use whole wheat, all-purpose, whole rye, spelt, oat, etc. I also typically make high-hydration doughs which make a spongier bread. But it's all about preference and experimentation.

* One example of using react-motion (0.3.0) within react-router (v1.0.0-rc3).
* Usage is simple, and really only requires two things–both of which are
* injected into your app via react-router–pathname and children:
* <RouteTransition pathname={this.props.pathname}>
