2 weeks ago I stumbled upon this site looking for information/opinions on a new stand mixer purchase (Bosch MUM86) and am now hopelessly addicted to the forums! I've always been passionate about food (previously a chef now a food science undergrad) and now it seems I've caught the bread bug!
I'm ashamed to say that I've never baked bread in my life previous to last week. I have since baked 3 batches of bread using richard bertinet's (that guy is awesome) white dough recipe and twinkering with kneading and fermentation times. Behold, my abominations!
