An introduction from a Kiwi~
Good evening fellow forum members!
This is my first true post; i've asked two questions so far, but then realised I hadn't actually introduced myself to everyone! So this is it, my introduction. Im a Kiwi, born and bred (A New Zealander, for everyone not quite with the jargon). Im fifteen years old now and have a deep passion with bread, having started baking it properly about half way through this year after my friend gave me a bread book as a gift -- "New Zealand Bread Book", by Alison and Simon Holst.
I've baked the 'new-age' style loaves (quick-rise, butter-filled recipes) and am now venturing into the artisan-style area of baking, managing to fit around three loaves into a week with all my commitments as a student (and social commitments, being a teenager!). My task for tomorrow is to go hunting for a jar to start a starter in, and then bake a whole-wheat loaf that ill invent on the spot; can't afford an eight hour first rise or anything ridiculous, so ill cheat a little and add a few teaspoons of sugar.
So that's that, a brief little introduction. Im loving the site already, with the vast amounts of information in front of me whenever I want it, and I think ill be on here quite a bit from now on.
Thanks folks for letting me in (:
