Greetings from the Netherlands
Hi, I'm Baking Soda (a.k.a. Karen), I am from the Netherlands, started with a Panasonic breadmaker, got hooked on baking bread and now I mostly use my Kenwood stand mixer and oven to bake almost all our bread (and cookies and cakes...) for my family of five.
I did come across this site a couple of times and read and lurked but it never occurred to me that I could join....::blush:: So here I am. I like the Romertopf for baking bread, I don't like the NYT no-knead (oops), imho it lacks in flavour and the crumb is too gummy. Most of all I love using bigas or poolish for the extra depth of flavour. What I really would like? A new Boretti stove with double ovens and a bread baking/pizza stone...
You could of course visit my blog! I'd love to "see" you.
