Hello from Los Angeles
I am new to the group. I have always wanted to learn how to bake bread/pastries and honestly I know absolutely nothiny about baking. I've used mixes successfully from costco and the grocery store. But I am very excited about learning so hopefully I can pick it up quickly!
I am a homebrewer and I am more skilled in that area. I have some awards. So I am hoping some of the knowledge I have in brewing will help in baking.
If anyone has any feedback or advice on how to get started as far as buying equipment, books- I already own Artisan Baking by Maggie Glezer and I read through it back in June. Or maybe you can give me some ideas for my first projects? That would be awesome ;)! Cheers
