Hello from Birmingham
I'm newish to bread baking and have stumbled across this site. For a couple of years I've been trying to learn to produce a decent loaf of bread but with minimal success, for every decent loaf there's at least more then one brick. I have an earth oven I built for pizza and bread, the pizzas are excellent but I'm yet to get a successful loaf out of it.
While looking about for a good book for beginners i found this forum, so I'm looking for a beginners guide to bread. Any advice about good recipes to start with and techniques to learn would be much appreciated. I'm going to hopefully master a decent loaf by the time the weather gets better so I can get baking in my earth oven.
