Hello from Bangkok
My name is Nathan and I am not only new to bread making, but also new to baking. I started down the sourdough road almost a month ago. My wife and I recently moved into a new house which also has an oven in the kitchen, something of a rareity in Thailand. So I did some research and decided to try my hand at growing a starter and baking my own bread.
Tonight after work I will be baking my third loaf, using rye flour. My first attempt was a huge failure. The starter wasn't any where near mature. The second try with the same recipe was a huge success and gave me the courage to try using rye flour.
So I look forward to learning a lot more about baking and generally using my oven a whole lot more.
