Finding Bread Clubs

January 22, 2015 - 9:52am -- Wannabe

This bread-baking thing is starting to become a passion (obsession?). The Fresh Loaf community is truly exciting. Amazes me how fast people respond, some with thoroughly researched answers.

Can anyone suggest how to find amateur bread bakers in my local area of 1-million people? So far, quick searches on google and yahoo groups produced nada.

Keeping bread

January 19, 2015 - 2:55pm -- Ingrid G

I live in sub-tropical climate and would like to know how fellow forum members in similar climates keep their precious breads from getting mouldy. We had a lot of humidity lately (70-80%) and I just had to toss my left-over batard because it showed signes of going 'the other way'.

Has anybody a fail-proof way of avoiding this?

Usually I keep my bread, after fully cooling, in a plastic bag in my bread box. A fortnight ago I eliminated the plastic bag and wrapped the bread in a tea towel and put that in the bread box. Still, it only kept for three days.

Recommended reading?

Hello and thanks for your wonderful site and forum! I'm making my way through the reading list of books, compiled under your site's main menu.

Can anyone recommend magazines and other blogs that discuss baking either at home or even in professional bakeries?

Thanks in advance!

Hacked site???

Hay Floyd,  Been a while since I stopped by.  Checking up on some posts here and keep getting shoved off to some  lemonaid mag . com site.  What's up with that?  Did not know if I was the only one having this issue.

Pasta machines recommendations

December 29, 2014 - 8:35am -- O'donnell

Hi people.

I live in Israel, and looking to buy a pasta machine for thr first time.

Available in stores and internet websites shipping to my area are two brands, Marcato and Imperia.

Can anyone give a strong recommendation for any of those?

The Imperia is a bit pricier than the Marcato, and it has two different types, Cllasic (again pricier) and Titanina. Anyone familiar with the diffrences?

Thanks ahead for anoyne trying to help.
