February 2014 Desktop Calendar

At the beginning of every month in 2014, I will be offering a new wallpaper to apply on the desktop of your computer, with a food-related picture and a calendar of the current month.

As a new feature this year, the desktop calendar is now available in two versions: a US-friendly version that features Sunday as the first day of the week, and a French version that complies with international standards, featuring Monday as the first day of the week.

Our calendar for February is a picture of Gontran Cherrier‘s remarkably rye and red miso bread, which I dearly love.

The crumb is tight and almost cake-like in its tenderness; the crust is robust and toasts to a satisfying crisp. And the flavor — it is unlike any rye bread I’ve ever had, with the genius pairing of the malty aromas of rye and the umami sweetness of red miso. Read more about it here.

Instructions to get your calendar are below.

Here’s how it works:

1- Click on the following links to get the US version (weeks begin on Sunday) or to get the French version (weeks begin on Monday); each of these links will open a new window (or tab) displaying the wallpaper, in the appropriate format for your screen size.

2- Right-click (or ctrl-click for some Mac users) on the image, and choose the option that says, “Set as Desktop Background”, “Use as Desktop Picture,” or something to that effect (exact wording will depend on the browser you use).

3- If the image does not fit your desktop background neatly, you may have to go to your preference panel (on a Mac: System Preferences > Desktop & Screen Saver > Desktop; on Windows: Control Panel > Display > Desktop) and choose “Fit to screen” as the display mode of your background image.

4- Enjoy and see you next month!

      I don’t have a recipe for it, but it’s on my list of things I want to try making, so I hope to have one to offer someday!
