Hi from kid baker, returned
Hi All -
Fantastic site, just wanted to say hello. My story is that I began life as a kid cook close to 40 years ago, by first baking and pastry making, then, with the seed given as a present by way of Jacques Pepin's La Technique, working it cover to cover, I began a life in French cooking. (few pics):
A spinal injury has ended my professional life, but somewhere over the last month, I've rekindled my first love, for the simplicity of wheat and heat....after viewing some thoughts and drooling over pics from this site, I had to get back in. Literally, the first loaves baked in decades (so be kind!)....the smells alone were enough to send me back to heaven.
Just wanted to say hi, and looking forward to dropping by from time to time.
(Edited to add: apologies for the weird gaps, all...trying to figure out why, as the preview isn't showing them, but so far, not much luck).
