Just wanted to say hello....from Peterborough, Ontario, Canada

Hello All,

I have been a long time home baker of artisan bread, I am a Pastry Chef but just recently took on a job as a baker for a very successful Toronto based restaurant and catering company.

I must say I am totally loving it....... I have never worked so hard for so little money and I am happy doing so.

Thank you to everyone on this site, your posts have been very helpful, keep up the good work. I will try to do my part as well to contribute.

Hello there MyHotKitchen I wanted to be the first to say hello to you.  I just joined this site as well and I am a Canadian too, cool eh.  It is a great honor to talk to you as you are a professional.  I am looking forward to learning a lot from you.

My father-in-law was a pastry chef in Germany he tells stories about having to whistle when they were cutting the cherries.  That way the boss would know that they were not eating them.  Hard to eat and whistle at the same time.

When you mentioned that you were a pastry chef it caught my attention.  Looking forward to hearing more from you.

Hi you two.  We've been populating this site lately with more Canadians and that's fine with me, but there are people from all over the world here too.  It's a great site.
