Hello from France. Start at the beginning.
Bonjour à tous !
I am not a baker but I like to make bread at home.
My English is not always perfect, sorry if sometimes it is confused. Don't hesitate to tell me.
Everything I do with breads is mainly for beginners at the moment.
My philosophy is not to make exceptional breads for myself.
I prefer to have fun and test lots of things.
For this reason, I decided to test the maximum of flours here in my region. I am lucky to be in France near the borders of Luxembourg, Belgium and Germany.
So, I will test in the future all the flours that I can find.
Sometimes my breads are nice and good and sometimes less beautiful and less good.
But I will say that it is not up to me to improve them.
From the moment I manage to make a bread with such or such flour, whoever wants to use the same flour can get to know it better than I do. The main thing is that he knows that it is already possible to make bread with it.
My method for making bread is simple. I go out a bit in the traditional way. At the moment I use almost only dry baker's yeast. Simply because in my philosophy there is also that beginners must learn to make bread as simply as possible. By learning from the start to do it simply, we want to continue again and again towards more professional breads.
Too many beginners start with difficult breads that give too much disappointment and abandonment. "Small will become big" as we say with us! Good breads to all! T.J.
