Hello eveyone,

I am new to this blog, but have been reading for quite sometimes now. I am new to bread making and quite fascinated by the art, science, and cutural significance behind the subject; and, personally enjoy learning the process of how things work and made (not to mention try my hands on if possible).

And of course as a person who likes to eat, I would love to learn about the process even more.

I am looking forward to gain more knowledge from everybody.

Thanks and have a wonderful day.

In view of your interests about science and how things work, do check out the writings of our resident microbiologist, Debra Wink.  Her sourdough posting is a classic and includes links to further reading at the bottom of the post.
