To appease our writer, we finally agreed to print the recipe for Club Med's white-chocolate bread - but we couldn't promise him that it would relieve his debt to mankind. Then we tasted it for ourselves and realized that Kevin is now a free man.
Club Med White-Chocolate Bread(makes five loaves)
8 cups flour
1 teaspoon yeast
1 tablespoon gluten, wheat
3 1/2 cups water
2 teaspoons salt
2 3/4 cups white-chocolate chips
Place the flour, yeast, and gluten in a small bowl of an electric mixer. Mix on medium-low or first speed for 1 minute with the hook attachment. Add the water and mix for another 2 minutes. Add the salt and continue to mix for another 8 to 10 minutes on medium or second speed. Add the chips and mix for an additional 1 to 2 minutes or until the chips are well distributed throughout the dough. Take the dough out of the bowl and lightly knead into a ball. Let rest for 15 to 20 minutes. Preheat the oven to 450 F. Cut the dough into portions of about 1 1/2 cups and knead into the desired form. Let the loaves proof for about 30 to 45 minutes, depending on the heat and humidity of the area they are proofing in. Place the uncooked loaves on a baking pan lined with either parchment paper or silpat and bake for approximately 20 minutes.
