Home baking: where to buy the stuff I need without going bankrupt?
Hello, I'm fairly new to baking and have taken it up enthusiastically in my home. So far, I'm working without all the speciality tools like a baking stone, lame, couche, baking parchment, banneton, etc. Now, I want to buy these speciality items to make baking easier and to, hopefully, improve my bread. Here's the dilemma: where do I buy these things? I don't fall into the category of wanting to buy wholesale in large quantities; at the same time I don't want to pay the 'Williams and Sonoma' price. Where can I get good quality home baking equipment at affordable prices? I live in Portland, Oregon. I also would consider ordering on-line if you have a good suggestion from the cyber-shopping world. thanks,Scone Boy
