Young baker abroad needs help from home!!
Cioa from Italia,
I am an American girl living in Italy for a spell, and I miss baking dearly. I have chosen to post this in professional topics, as I woudl like soem expert advice...
Here, in Italy, baking powder, soda, adn cream of tartar simply dont exist. While I have managed to get my hands on a bootleg box of baking soda, I can not make many baked goods with only this... Or so I think not anyway. While the pastries of Italy are quite nice, I miss the simpler items... like homemade biscuts and the like.
All that is available here is a moist yeaest block type substance. Can anyone please offer advice? I will be here for sometime to come!
Thank you in advance!
