So, how deep is this rabbit hole?
Greetings all from a South Carolina bread noobie! I have always wanted to give real bread making a go, but never could quite make the plunge other than the occasional pizza or batch of pretzels. Well, I got married a few months ago and we got a kitchenaid as a wedding gift, so here I am. Geeze, I had no idea how complex and interesting the world of bread could be, and I am afraid that I may get lost traversing down here in the rabbit hole! Anyways, I made my first loaf this weekend (Poolish Baguette 'formula' from The Bread Baker's Apprentice), and my wife and I loved the results! I certainly have loads of questions though, so I am going to put up some photos and questions I have over on the General Discussions Forum. Although this journey seems daunting now, I am looking forward to developing my bread making skills and seeing where this leads!
