Hello from Vancouver Island
Ran acrosss this site today for the first time and was so impressed with the content and layout I decided to join up. For those of you who have never heard of Vancouver Island (VI from here on) it's a large island off the west coast of British Columbia Canada. I've been a professional baker for twenty four years , the bulk of that time working for a large retail grocery store chain. I'm hoping to retire sometime in the next six years or so and have thought I might do some artisan baking for some of the local farmer's markets just to keep my hand in. This looks like an excellent site for picking up new ideas and info towards that end. I'm looking forward to exchanging ideas and techniques and helping out where I can.
