Hi and Thank You!! Share celebration with me?
Hi from Fairfax, VA. My name's Maya, and up until a week ago I've never even *thought* about baking bread.Then, thanks to this site, I was able to make my first baguettes ever today, by hand, with no bread maker, from scratch - actual picture below - I can't believe it. I created a combined recipe using Fromartz, Reinhard and others to make a 68% hydration dough using a 100% hydration poolish that I made last night, and I'm totally jazzed at what I got out of my baguettes today. My beloved actually used the words "fantastic" and "impressed" :D What more could a girl want?I can't thank you all enough. I have read so many posts from this site this week. Without you I never would have found the kneading video, or learned valuable lessons from your experiences that helped me out tremendously! I would never have known to look up Fromartz or Reinhard. I would never have known what a preferment was... Really, thank you so much, every one of you.Will you share my celebration with me? Grateful,Maya
