Just a little bit to let you know
My husband German I'm Thai. My family eat European bread for breakfast, I have to drive 40 min. or 1 hour to get those bread and buy them a lot to storage in our freezer so we have breads to eat for hole month.
In Thailand not many people eat bread. So, very few good bread (the way we like) in the market. Now, I wanted to make my own bread, and I had problem to make Baguettes and souredough, I guess may be I didn't get the right flour. I still keep on trying, sometime doesn't work out good sometime it workout.
I got your books in my cooking book collection, hasn't try your recipe yet. I would love to make bread everyday but my family couldn't keep up. :)
