Starting a bread club
I posted a notice in my local social group suggesting that we start an artisan bread club. So far 5 of us are meeting on Sunday. I'm not sure of just what we'll be doing and I thought I'd ask if anyone has ideas about good things to discuss in a club like this. I think we're all pretty much novices. I was thinking for an initial meeting we might introduce ourselves and just talk about what bread means to us, and how we feel about bread baking. Also I thought I'd bake baguettes ala the Julia Child video and do the same recipe only with a poolish, to demonstrate that technique can have a huge impact on ingredients. The baguettes would have exactly the same ratios of flour and water, yeast and salt, the only difference will be in how the ingredients are handled. If anyone has any suggestions I'd love to hear them.
