hey guys! amsterdam calling here :-)
Hey fellow Loaf-lovers!
Just a quick introduction: I'm a Dutch novice in breadbaking. About a week ago I made my first French loaf. The kitchen has been a total mess eversince; knee-deep in flours, yeasts and a wide variety of home grown sourdough-starter I can't seem to stop baking anymore....
This morning I took my first sourdough out of the oven and realized that I am really hooked on this...
I didn't expect too much from my first attempt at sourdough bread, but lo and behold; it worked! It's a great "looker" and by Jove; it tastes great as well!
It's a sourdough variation on the easy no knead recipe from Sullivan's in NYC. On Youtube there's a somewhat bizarre artsy fartsy "Tracy Emin-video" showing the entire recipe
My respect for bakers has been on the rise - just like my dough - and hopefully all you guys and gals here are willing to help me develop into a fullfledged amateur-baker :-)
Love to hear from all of you,
