One Roosh Message That I Fully Support

I've never thought I'd endorse anything put forward by this guy anymore, after all these scandals connected with his name, but incredibly enough, he's now promoting home-baking! See for yourself:




 I basically use the same recipe (I think they are all pretty similar), but I never bother to weigh anything. It's just 4c flour (I usually use a mixture of whole wheat, spelt and regular), 2tbsp of olive oil, the same amount of water he uses, 2tbsp sugar, 2tsp salt and 2tsp yeast. I may have forgotten something so I don't recommend using it the way I've written it. The order of placing ingredients recommended by my instruction manual is different, too. First, I grease it with some extra olive oil, then add the half of flour, then pour in the water (which I don't warm but just use warm water from the tap) + olive oil, then add the rest of dry ingredients.

Roosh is right when he says it tastes great and I do believe it's generally healthier than store brands, but what is more important is the fact that baking your bread is a pretty traditional thing to do. That's why on my blog I promote home baking, too!

  1. Not as traditional for bachelors to do it, but hey, why not? :)

  2. Just from the visuals of it, it looks like he's turned from PUA into a kind of a medieval hermit. Doesn't he promote some brand of "new spirituality" on his site, too? Well, hermits usually did such things as make their own everything, as far as i know. He even states that maybe he'll move out of the city and live more like an Amish or something.

    1. Yes, he has evolved.

      The manosphere, for many, was a gateway drug to the reactosphere / orthosphere and/or the alt-right.

  3. Brewing his own beer would be more in line, but considering his origin I'm not sure he drinks alcohol.

    1. Ah.

      I know hard-core paleo types also eschew alcohol, but then they also eschew bread, or any kind of carbs. Which is dumb.

  4. I don't think in his case it comes from paleo. More like from his religious roots. But I maybe wrong and I don't want to libel him:) Maybe, he really loves beer.

  5. Will, most people eventually grow up when they realise their own mortality and the emptiness of hedonism.

  6. P.S. I don't at all think that baking your own bread is strange or unmanly, after all a baker was (and often is, at least over here) usually a man.

    1. I don't think it is, either; same as cooking isn't (most professional chefs are men, too, after all). I was just noting how uncommon it is, though.

    A friend of my hubby, a single man, makes his own bread. Every morning. He puts the bread machine ready in the evening.

    I personally prefer baking in the owen. I hate having gadgets for everything. I had to bite my tongue when my hubby just brought home an electric knife sharpener. :)

  8. Yes, but then you'll have to do your own kneading and stuff:) The bread-baker does it all for you...

    I would actually love to knead dough. I remember how good it felt when I was allowed to bake with grandma. But with gluten-free flours you cannot knead, you just mix stuff with spoon or wooden fork.

  10. Well, it's actually nice now and then...but when you bake all your own bread it's a bother if you see what I mean:) How do gluten-free flours rise then? I guess it doesn't look like a regular loaf, does it?
