Hello Hello from California
So excited to have joined this forum and I'm so looking forward to interacting with everyone and learning more about home bread making!
I am a first semester culinary student, and the first half of the semester was spent on breakfast pastries, plated desserts, cookies, and *DUN DUN dundun DAHH* bread! I totally fell in love with the bread-making process, and I mean, once you start eating fresh bread everyday you you NEED it!
Baking at school was awesome because of all of the equipment (bread oven with a steamer, proofer, super knowledgeable instructor) however, I'm having trouble translating it to home baking.
My main focus is learning how to make the perfect sourdough at home. I am lucky enough to live in San Francisco, and scored some of our schools 100 year old starter!
I have a pizza stone, a KitchenAid, a proofing basket, and some razors!
Any suggestions, sourdough recipes, and new friends are sooo wanted!
Have a great weekend, and happy baking!
