Perusing that perfect loaf
Hi everyone! I just wish to say thanks to everyone who are contributing to this forum, which is reach of knowledge and experience of home bakers from all over the world. I started baking bread couple of years ago and although I enjoyed it much, it was just another task. Until I discovered artisan bread baking... What an amazing experience and journey it is! Taste and texture of my bread is improving loaf by loaf and not only that. Few days ago I made my first sour doug bread and it tasted fantastic. Now I will experiment with frermentation times to achive what will suit my taste buds.
The process of bread baking makes me reflect a lot about life in general.
What I learned is that progress can be achieved by accumulating knowledge and experience through time. Constant effort, time and passion should be main ingredients of everything we do. There are no shortcuts in achieving quality and desired goal. Many times I find out the ways not to do it and yet every time it comes out a bit better. Wait... is this bread I'm talking about or is it life? Or is it: bread = life?
I'm still perusing that perfect loaf of bread...
See you on the forums, Tomas
