Hi From the Philippines
Hi everyone, and a warm hello from Manila, Philippines! My name's Lennie (oh, I'm female btw), and I only just recently started baking breads. I've been baking cookies and brownies since my teens, but was always a bit daunted by the idea of going into breads because it seemed to be such a long, arduous process and I wasn't sure I'd have the talent for it!
I've been reading a few of your blogs and book reviews and find everything so interesting...it's like a whole new world's opening up to me! Thanks to all of you for generously sharing your knowledge and experiences.
I'm taking baking classes right now to get some hands-on experience, and baked my first hearth breads (french bread, baguettes, vienna rolls), soft breads, and puff pastries this week! I just hope I'll be as successful as you all are in producing breads at home and, hopefully, will be able to make a go of a small business in the near future. I'm learning a lot from this site and am excited to share my own journey with you in the coming weeks and months...warm regards, and to your best,
