Hi From Wales UK
Hi all, Just found this site. My name is Jeff and I live in a tiny village called Libanus near Brecon in Mid-Wales (at the foot of Pen Y Fan to be precise). I have recently returned to breadmaking after many years (and I only dabbled with it then - thank you Delia Smith). 2 books have really done it for me: the River Cottage bread book and Dough by Richard Bertinet (though I still get dough all over the kitchen with his scoop, swing, slap and fold method of working the dough). I have now moved from 'sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't' to 'it pretty much works every time' and so am looking to spread my bread making horizons with the help of all you experienced bakers out there ;-) All the best, Jeff.
