Longtime baker, first time poster
Hi! My name is Jay, and I live in west central FL. I've been making bread for about 30 years now, but never realized that there was a forum about it! My aunt got me started with Bernard Clayton's The Breads of France, and I've been baking ever since! I'm a pretty good cook all around. but especially like smoking, grilling, and of course, bread. I also dabble in wine making and sausage making. I'm married ( to a wonderful cook!) and we have one son in graduate school. I'm a tool and die maker by trade, and most of my other hobbies involve machinery of one kind or another. I'm looking forward to reading and learning all I can here, and sharing any meager knowledge I have.
