I have been making bread every week now for over 40 years. In the beginning I even ground my own flour in a Corona Grain Mill.
I am constantly experimenting. Sometimes I have good results and other times.......blech.
I live in Boston and we have some very good bakeries. In fact I wonder why I bother at all but I really enjoy making bread. Recently I have become addicted to the 7 grain bread that Iggy's Breads of the World" creates. It is so yummy and makes fantastic sandwiches.
