I just found this wonderful forum! I will spend some time here for sure. I love bread and pastry. I found this site looking for the difference between a poolish and a sponge.

This certainly is the place for bread - and we have some awesome pastry bakers as well.

Be sure to check out the Handbook and Video tabs at the top of the page; lots of good info there.
