Long time reader, finally decided to join up. Been baking for sometime now, started by slinging dough as a pizza chef, eventually made my way to the CIA. Worked around the east coast and opened a catering company. Gave it all up for my first love, carpentry, but never gave up my passion for food, most of all bread. The second I first stumbled upon this site I've always used it for inspiration, advice, and formulas. Glad to be a part of it and looking forward to posting some of my creations!
