Hello from another new member
My name is Max and I'm an amateur bread maker.
I am absolutely thrilled to learn about this site (which I stumbled upon while looking for a recipe for making semolina bread, more on that later). I am a computer geek, and really love the open source community way of doing things. So when I came across this here open source bread community, I was overjoyed. I immediately read all FAQs, Lessons and other tips I could find (I had a busy morning) and have now joined to become part of the community.
I started baking bread rather recently, and it turns out that I instinctively knew a few things that were explained here (more water means stickier dough means nicer crumb), and didn't know several other things that I wish I had known (oven temperatures, steam, working properly with yeast...). :|
When I couldn't find a good recipe online for something I wanted to make, I made one up. Some worked well (onion bread) some not so well (cheese bread). I will share some of that, and am really eager to see what other people have to share.
