Greetings from Manchester UK
Hi there. My earlier attempt at an introductory post didn't work, so here's my second attempt...
I've recently started baking bread, which at times seems almost like alchemy. I'm keeping my attempts simple for the time being and am grateful for any advice anyone can give me about a whole lot of things. I have a relatively small kitchen (I live in a city centre apartment) and at the moment am confining my efforts to white loaves and buns.
When I have more understanding and experience I'd like to branch out in to more exotic things like Focacica and ultimately start making sourdough. But for the time being I'm keeping things simple.
As I type this there is a loaf baking in the oven to go with some chicken soup I am also making for supper. So I'd better sign off and see how it's going.
