Bread baking supplies in Vancouver
Hi all, I will be in Vancouver for the next two months as part of a student exchange programme. Initially I was not planning to bake but after seeing the beautiful local produce and having discovered that my apartment comes with an oven, I am thinking of resuming my weekly bread baking routine. Most probably would be focusing on simple breads made with preferment, unless I decide to grow a Vancouver SD starter.
Anyway, I would like to tap on the expertise of Vancouver bread bakers in this forum. Any suggestions on where to pick up some decent bread baking supplies? (Was thinking of either a stone or some baking tins along with a spatula, some measuring spoons / scale and a mixing bowl to start). Since this is a short term thing, I would probably give most of the stuff away after that so I just need some decently priced and usable items to get going. Though if they work well, I don't mind lugging them back too.
Also, any other suggestions or recommendation to the Vancouver bread baking scene would be appreciated? Any flour mills, bakeries or upcoming events nearby that I should visit? Can't wait to experiment with Canadian flour and ingredients. Thanks for the help.
