    Let the feminists riot! Roosh is making bread! Surely this is bread rape porn… lol Nothing beats homemade bread. One of the greatest childhood memories I have is my dad making bread while studying for his master’s degree.

    Do you use store-bought yeast, or do you extract it from the wild?

    1. Roosh November 4, 2016 at 1:09 pm

      Store bought. I’m not sure I want to know how wild yeast is extracted.

        Ive bagged a few vaginas in my day that were likely good source candidates

        Roosh, wild yeast is unknown to me, but sourdough starter is easy to start, I’ve done it several times now. But it works most reliably if you can get pure 100% rye flour and use that. I tried using oats in one batch, and it was… interesting. Reminded me a bit of injera.

        Sourdough is free, and gives a complexity of flavor you wouldn’t believe. Also, it doesn’t even make the bread taste sour. In commercial “sour” dough bread, I think they add something to give it a bit of sour taste. But on its own, if you just use the standard home recipes, it isn’t sour. Just mild and nice.

        No matter where you get your sourdough starter from, after a week the microbes are identical to a sourdough starter that you make from scratch; each location makes its own unique fingerprint sourdough. So don’t spend money for a sourdough starter, just start it from the microbes floating around in your area.

    I’ve been considering a bread machine for a long time, but I don’t really eat a lot of bread these days, and was wondering if there was any truth to the gluten BS and Paleo diet that says we shouldn’t be eating bread. But I’m sure eating fresh home baked bread is better than most of what we eat.

    Nothing better than enjoying a meal you made from scratch.

      Tbh with respect to paleo and low carb and so on, I have no clue anymore what is the right path. You see some manosphere guys moving away from paleo again so I don’t know what the truth is.

      I do know that if you are doing a manual labour type job for many hours (much like farmers did), high carbs are a must.

      If your life is sedentary, carbs are not as important.

      Also insulin response versus conservation of energy. I don’t know which is more important. Do we lose weight on low carb because of water weight loss, or satiation? Or is because the biochemistry does some mumbo jumbo that works out better for people as their body and gut feels less inflamed?

        I wish I knew some more good sources for health info. I tend to like Dr. Andrew Weil, and Andy Bellati, a nutritionist. There was some health guy that has a podcast called Revolution Health Radio, that I picked up from ROK, but it’s pretty dense stuff and I stopped listening.

    Wow, so I’m not the only one using the bread machine. It costs me way less than 0,5€ per kilo.

    Just one advice…firstly add flour and liquids last. These machines have a sleeve bearing which starts failing after a few years…it’s not watertight anymore. And it takes me 2,5 hrs for a kilo (prep included).

    And why Americans put sugar into every darned food, escapes me. Could somebody explain for a European?

    1. hInstance November 4, 2016 at 10:52 pm

      Hi, my bread machine dates back to around 1998 and is still fine. I’m confused, do you mean put in the flour first and then any liquids in case the sleeve bearing leaks the liquid?

      1. Shalalabayzer November 5, 2016 at 12:21 pm

        Yes, sir, that is exactly what I meant. On my Clatronic bread machine the bearing on the bottom of the kneading/baking cup became a bit loose and is not watertight anymore. I think it’s 10 years old now and leaking started after approx. 4 years.

        The flour soaks up the liquid fast enough during the kneading phase, so this is my solution for this problem. I refuse to buy a new bread machine every couple of years, just because some lousy mechanical engineers intentionally made a weak part (bearing in this case).

        Machine of which brand do you use?

      2. hInstance November 10, 2016 at 3:53 am

        I have a Breville brand. I don’t use it that much, which may explain it’s longevity. If I don’t use it for a while the sleeve bearing gets very stiff to turn and I have to free it up by hand turning for a bit to get it mobile again. It is a shame your machine is doing that as it would seem to prevent the use of the countdown timing feature to have the bread ready the following morning.

      3. Shalalabayzer November 11, 2016 at 2:12 am

        Yeah, I use it twice a week, so it’s a “workhorse”. And I don’t like the bread being totally fresh, so I bake it in the evening and let it rest during the night. Old folks from way back then “aged” the bread for a day so they didn’t eat it too much. I guess they knew that too much of it isn’t good.

        Sleeve bearings are cheap and easy to manufacture, but they lack lifetime. Also the transfer from electric motor to the paddle is usually done with rubber belt and not with a chain and it wears out. This is not a problem at all if you’re a DIY freak and an engineer like myself, but for all others this would bring huge disappointments.

    Fortunately i have a bakery just right next to my door which bakes bread every morning, otherwise i would have considered if i had to buy those packaged ones from the store

  7. disqus_2015ScorpioWater November 4, 2016 at 7:08 pm

    Great idea. Better to get away from processed shit that is in so many people’s diets that make them pack on extra weight. I myself swore off sugary sweets and sodas.

  8. Mycroft Jones November 4, 2016 at 7:45 pm

    Spooky. Roosh started baking bread around the time I did, and like me, is using a gram scale.

    After that we diverge; Roosh uses bread maker, I use microwave oven. Roosh uses yeast, I use sourdough starter. Today I will experiment with baking bread in a rice cooker.

    Fun stuff. A good sourdough rye is an excuse to love mayonaise.

  9. jarvis November 5, 2016 at 7:08 am

    hey don’t worry about enjoying baking and cooking, you don’t have to justify it being masculine and manly because it’s not inherently a womanly task!!!

    1. spicynujac November 5, 2016 at 11:42 am

      I thought he got married? Wife must be a shit cook.
      Haha.. actually most of my married guys are better cooks than their wives.

      He should do more of those.. This has 9 x more views as any other video he’s put up.

      1. cheeseburgercheeseburger November 5, 2016 at 12:42 pm

        9X more? Too funny. I know very few good female cooks these days- my Italian grandma and her sisters, they were great cooks

      2. Michael Maier November 5, 2016 at 9:17 pm

        He married a black broad comic. Like SHE cooks? Yeah… not fuckin’ likely.

    Domesticated Roosh :p

    But for real though making your own food is fun. We have a thing called allotments in the uk where people can have their own bit of land to garden on (that’s away from their garden), and often you see elderly people make their own crops and so on there.

    Also our Polish neighbours downlow have converted their enclosed garden into a mini farm with chickens and other things.

    They’re not supposed to but then when has following the rules ever really yielded positive results anyhow?

  12. Muppetologiste Ca November 5, 2016 at 2:27 pm

    How much you have been payed to do the commercial 😉

  13. Michael Maier November 5, 2016 at 9:24 pm

    Bread machines are easy. I use mine to knead the dough and then shape it and put it in the oven. Square bread just sucks. Not enough surface area browning and the crust is the best part.

    Cooking for yourself is awesome. Apply yourself some and the results are usually better than what you can get in restaurants. Good ingredients can get expensive quick, though.

    If you’re just starting to cook, start with some marinades. Get a glass pan, put four chicken thighs down and cover with store-bought Italian dressing. Put in fridge, flip in the morning. Broil them that night and serve with steamed fresh broccoli.

    Then think a little and apply your imagination. Slow-roasting and marinades will make you a decent cook. Watch some YouTube videos and inflate your stock some more.

    And never make a big deal about cooking. It’s embarrassingly easy. Do it decently well and watch your woman’s panties soak as she brags to her friends you’re a better cook than her mom.

  16. Baphmoney November 6, 2016 at 11:11 am

    YOU DON´T DO YoUR BREAD. YOU HAVE SOMEBODY TO DO IT FOR YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  17. Baphmoney November 6, 2016 at 11:20 am

    IT TAKES A LION TO IDENTIFY A LION. AND YOU AIN´T NO FUCKING CAT. Stop with this shit politics. Or keep it residual. No political magazine ever gave profit. AND GO GET YOUR FUCKING MONEY. You use to write about economy also. Then you made a survey and the answers told you not to continue. FUCK THEM.

    Regarding sandwiches:

    Does anyone have any suggestions for good yet inexpensive cheese (i.e. something beyond just grabbing a Boar’s Head package of ham / cheese)? Checked out a couple stores and noticed that, while there’s a lot of custom cheeses, a lot of them are +$6 for a small wedge.

  19. Tarik November 6, 2016 at 10:56 pm

    Bread cooking huh? Time to update Urban Dictionary with the “definition” hahahahaha

  20. spentcasings November 7, 2016 at 1:10 am

    Why not make your own bread by hand without the machine? That is how the wife makes it, whips up a dough in no time flat, using the extra hot water she has from kettle once she makes her morning tea.

  21. Dwrd Cfla November 8, 2016 at 9:56 pm

    Salt is supposed to kill yeast so I don’t get how you get the bread to rise if all ingredients go in at same time(?)

  22. TyKo Steamboat November 9, 2016 at 5:27 am

    TRUMP WON! WE DID IT!!!!

  23. Baphyer November 14, 2016 at 5:37 am

    What are you waiting to sue? Fuck. Do it quota litis. The lawyer pays everything and receives a success fee if he wins. The time is ripe. With the proceedings from the trial invest a part. If you want to do it in Europe I can help you. But I think it´s mostly in Anglo coutnries. The forum should be greater. Much greater. This 250 rule will have a nefast effect in the long run. When I started working I wrote a set of rules. The first rule never forget the principles which made you successfull.

      I’m sure I read made in China DVD instructions with the exact same sentence.
