Hello from N. Lincolnshire (UK)
Hello - I have just started to hand bake now that I have more time (have been using a bread machine for many years). Have found the site very helpful so far and have printed some of the recipes and the drawings of the stretch and fold method of kneading. So much more flavour in my breads now with the preferments, rye flour and so on. Going to try to make some baguettes using a preferment today/tomorrow (recipe from Jane Mason's book that I was given for Christmas)... will let you know how I get on.
I buy my flours from a local windmill that grinds organic grains - wheat, spelt and rye to name just a few.
