Greetings from Stumptown

Hey everyone! I'm an avid reader as of a few days ago and finally decided to add some content! I"ve been baking at home for a couple years, attended Oregon Culinary Institute for Baking and Pastry, and now work in a test kitchen, baking up yummy deliciousness. I, as many others, have high hopes of someday opening my own bakery right here in Portland and focusing on artisan breads.


Last night I took one of my favorite Italian bread recipes and simply changed it from one loaf to three smaller baguettes. At the time of the picture, one had already been consumed by my girlfriend and a friend that was visiting. I've been working on getting my slashing down on baguettes and think that I finally nailed it here. Let me know what you think!

Hi, Dan.


Welcome to TFL.


Good luck with your plans. They say, "There's always room at the top." (Move over, Pearl!)

Good enough to want to bite. Keep us posted. Especially if you open another wonderful bakery here. Probably more of us in Portland than we known.
