Hello from Florida

Hi, I'm British and the one food I miss most from the UK is decent crusty bread. Happily I've been making bread for many years now and most of the time I'm very happy with the results, but sometimes... well, I'm delighted to find this group!

Welcome, Bob!

I look forward to seeing some of your bakes. Please share your progress and feel free to ask any questions that come to mind.

We are here to help and at the same time, eager to learn.

Welcome to Florida! A very different climate from Britain. A change in weather has required some changes in baking. My sourdough often takes off quickly, dough sometimes needs cooling instead of warmth and I acquired a propane stove/oven that sits in my garage to bake  with so I don't heat up the house. A cheap, 30 year old apartment-sized stove that bakes more evenly than any modern stove I ever had.

Being a world-wide forum, I had the proper support here to make changes to my baking.
