Baking myself through life :-)
I'm happy to have joined this site. For many years I have been a hobby cook and have been a member (still am) of the German site chefkoch.de. About five years ago, I became a fan of sourdough and was very successful with my own starter and creations. I have posted about that on der-sauerteig.de. However, my live has changed a lot over the years. My kids have grown up, my wife and I have split after nearly 25 years and my interests have moved to new territories. I'm still as interested in sourdough, but my occupation as a National Tour Guide for the Island of Ireland doesn't presently allow me to start a new starter, as I wouldn't be here at this time of year to look after it during its early days. I've therefore switched to bread baking with yeast. Even here i love baking with yeast ferment, which is very close to sourdough.
I've joined this community to share my baking experiences and I'm looking forward to "meeting" people here who share their experiences with the wider community. The Tour Guiding Season is about to start and I won't be baking as much as I would like to until September/October, but I'm still interested and I will still visit and peak :-). However, there will always be some time to bake in between tours and these experiences I will share with you.
All the best. I'm looking forward to "meeting" you guys.
