SF Baker relearning to bake!
After about a 15 year hiatus I am back baking bread. To my shame it took a lovely friend giving me her zorushi because she got a new one. It has made it so decadently easy to produce a nice white loaf I have not bought sandwich bread for about 2 months now!
But now my past has caught up with me, and as in all things culinary I just can not leave a good thing alone... I have to make it better.
Last weeks experiment with making a french style loaf was not exactly a flop, but more akin to a cross between Italian and White. Tasty but not satisfying at all.
This morning a google landed me on the French bread lesson here and I quickly discovered what a clever community of bakers are gathered here. I am so glad to have joined!
