Hello From Northern California
I wanted to say thank you for helping me start my bread baking hobby. I started exploring this site a few weeks ago as part of a school project to observe how members of online communities interact with one another, and after reading through many forum posts I decided to bake my own loaf of bread. I followed the instructions for the first lesson and ended up with this big ball of deliciousness that was the perfect complement to my spaghetti dinner. Now I can’t wait to finish baking my way through the rest of the lessons and beyond. One of the projects I’m most looking forward to is a fresh sourdough loaf, but I’m wondering if as a new baker it would be reasonable to try and create my own starter or would it be better to just try to acquire one that’s already been made? Thanks and happy baking to you all!
