Hi and Thank You!! Share celebration with me?

February 21, 2012 - 10:03pm -- mayagayam

Hi from Fairfax, VA.  My name's Maya, and up until a week ago I've never even *thought* about baking bread.Then, thanks to this site, I was able to make my first baguettes ever today, by hand, with no bread maker, from scratch - actual picture below - I can't believe it.  I created a combined recipe using Fromartz, Reinhard and others to make a 68% hydration dough using a 100% hydration poolish that I made last night, and I'm totally jazzed at what I got out of my baguettes today.

Starting a Starter - Sourdough 101, a Tutorial

January 12, 2009 - 4:29pm -- gaaarp

(The following started as a blog, but I've had enough questions and comments about it that I thought I'd repost it as a forum entry so it would be easier to find.  Of course, if Floyd wants to add it to Lessons, that would be OK, too.)


Like many people, I found TFL in my quest to learn how to make sourdough.  I had a starter going and was sure I had killed it.  The advice I found here gave me the knowledge and confidence to make a starter that I've been using for months now, with ever-better results.
