First Post & KF Field Blend 1
I have been reading this site for the past month and have finally cobbled together the courage to join the site and post a photo of my first attempt at KF's Field Blend 1. Cooked in my DO, the crust didn't crack open as I had hoped it would and I was looking for more holes. But as a first go with this, I was happy with the flavour (esp. 2 days later!!). Very nutty and only a very mild tang (which came out after about a day).
I have only been baking for about 6 weeks, reading (and re-reading) obsessively Forkish, Tartine, Hammelman, Calvel, Kayser, Rose L-B, McGee and even Parmentier. That said, I do feel that I have learned as much from David Snyder, Shiao Ping, CAPhyl, DABrownman, Mebakes, Mini Oven and Floyd (to name a few) as from the books - so a very genuine and heartfelt massive thank you to all!
I am gearing up to try out David's SJSD, it looks fab. More soon I hope!!
