Greetings from Belgium
I am Matt, from Ghent. My native language is Flemish, just keep that in mind if you reed my posts :-)
(always in to learn)
I am a graduate baker / pastry chef.
As long as I can remember, dough and fermentation has always fascinated me. Now it's time to focus more on sourdough, something that I have no knowledge about. I worked 8 years at a brewery, 1 year at a bakery and 2 years at a pastry shop full time. I worked for 6 years every weekend at a bakery (during schooltime and a little bit after graduation). At my current employer, it is my last month. Looking out for something different.
In addition to baking, I am mainly engaged in brewing and I try to maintain a healthy lifestyle (in several significant ways). 3 years ago I bought my first book about sourdough. This week finally found the time to actually read it. It's all very exciting... my first step is to buy a mill.
