A matter of skill and patience
I have been recently enjoying the triumphs and casualties of bread baking. The more I read and the more I ask about procedures and why(?), in general I am discovering how systematic bread making can be. Never the less it does not mean that bread baking has to be difficult. The more you understand the reason for doing each individual process, the more enjoyable bread becomes. I have recently been reading about kitchen scales and how important they are to baking the Artisan way. After adding 5 cups of flour to the mix, when the recipe only calls for up to 4. The reason? To much water I believe. So back to my original point, scales become a necessity when you realy want good results in the art of baking bread. I would be happy to know if anyone else feels the same way I do? Thanks for your response.
