From Gardener to Barker

 Sorry, I don't know how to post more than one picture, so these are the rolls we learn to braid  and row into shapes. siuflower

 

from gardener to baker:

We (4 of us) met in 2005 Master Gardener class and continue volunteer working in our community using our garden knowledge and also learning at the same time.
Two of us are experienced bakers and the other two never bake bread before. We start our bread baking journey last week, the first bread we did was the no-knead bread, it come out perfect. These two new bakers are really interest to continue their journey of bread making. Yesterday, we used three different kinds of method to bake bread and see the result of the breads. From left to right, the high rise bread is used by bread machine and set on dough setting. Second one by mixer (Kitchen Aid), and the last two are by kneading and French fold. The students did the kneading and folding of the dough, they learn to feel the texture of the dough, check the dough with window panel, and score the dough before baking, baking the bread and cooling. The rolls above we learn to braid and row into shapes. We had a wonderful time and a great baking day.

Siuflower,

You and your associates did a very nice job on both the rolls and loaves.  It's great that you can get together with others and enjoy a common interest.  Keep up the good work and keep us posted as you continue your "journey".
