New from Wisconsin

Hi-

I have been baking seriously for about two years now.  I have always been into cooking both as a job and now just as a hobby, but now that I started making bread, I have fallen in love with it.  I bake a lot of breads with wild yeast starter and I also have a small brick oven in my yard which I use mostly for pizza.  So far I haven't even scratched the surface of this forum, but I am really excited about learning from all of you.  Now I'm off to make baguettes.  I just got The Bread Baker's Apprentice, by Perter Reinhart and this is my first recipe experiement.

I'm in the Northwest, about an hour east of St. Paul.   And the oven is a small and temporary situation till I build something larger.  So it wouldn't be worth the drive.

Hi Mike

Great River Milling is two hours southeast of the twin cities. We are located outside of Fountain City WI. We have several brick oven pizza makers in our area. A-Z in Stockholm WI and right next door to my mill is a place called Suncrest Gardens, Organic garden that does brick oven pizza out doors in the summer. If your in the area call and I give you a tour of our stone flour ,illing operation.

I, too, am new and hve been baking on  my own for many years but do enjoy reading the forums and trying new ideas and everyone elses' recipes. I grew up on a dairy farm in the coulee region, LaCrosse County UW-Madison grad and rooting for those Badger Jan. 2.   Good to see so many bakers from Wisconsin.
