New here, from Oxford
Hi all. This is my second post, so thought I should introduce myself :-)
I started baking from scratch just about a year ago - inspired by The Great British Bake Off! - cakes first, then biscuits/cookies and then, within two or three months, bread. My first - and most regular - the Rye Loaf by Nigel Slater and not much else. Slowly perfecting that one, with a few disastrous fails along the way. Bricks, but not inedible!
I discovered this FANTASTIC site googling for information on just about anything, and always come back to it. And so today, New Year's Eve 2015, I signed up!!
Thanks so much for the Lessons. I know they will make me a better baker.
Baking, more than anything else, centres / soothes / grounds / calms me. Soooo therapeutic. I wish I could do it full-time. Unfortunately, I have a mortgage and an expensive wardrobe habit to maintain...
