Hi from Tasmania Australia
I bet there are plenty of Tasmanians here as it is a Foodies paradise in Tasmania, I am in Launceston and have been using a machine for about a year for all our bread but since discovering here how to make ciabatta (Jason's Croccodillo recipe) I am delving more into artisan bread-finding the machine stuff too blahhh. Have read Bread Alone, 200 Quick and Easy Artisan Bread recipes and Artisan Bread in 5 minutes a day.. still working my head around that one- I tend to weigh ingredients not measure them by volume and the US tablespoon is smaller than ours...I wonder about our wholemeal flour and yeast vs US versions too...
ah well... I must get my little munchkins to bed and then see if I can rustle up some meringues from left over egg whites....hmmm
