hello everyone,

my name is Mel, I am a professional baker at a local restaurant, working with both fresh baked breads and desserts. I am still pretty new at the professional baking job (i've only been doing both of them together for about 8 months), but doing my best to put out a quality product, because I truely love what I do. I am 24 years old and work in Memphis, TN. It was great to find this site and hopefully be able to find a lot of tips through reading the forums and help when I need it.

Go for it, Mel, and welcome to The Fresh Loaf!  We are all people who are tired of the tasteless products produced and sold in the grocery stores as bread.  We will gladly share recipes and give help as we are able.
