I'm new to this amazing world of bread, especially sourdough but it sounds exciting enough. I've been experimenting with simple breads using commercial yeast to practise on the basic techniques. can't wait to progress on to sourdough baking!

Welcome tyro! Maedi is in the midst of shifting files from our blogs over to the forum. Oh, Maedi........!

Baking bread is an amazing journey. Speaking from my own experience, I wouldn't have known there was so much to learn about bread. I'm still learning.

Enjoy your stay.

I have finally finished a tutorial on slashing spraying and baking loaves.

(It has taken a while because I have been busy at work, and also had the frustrating experience of losing half of it to a computer gremlin)That completes the series of 5 basic tutorials on sourdough baking, but I still am hoping to write a couple of shorter ones on sourdough timetables and recipes.
The tutorials are:

How to make your own starter.

How to use short kneads to handle moist doughs and bake a loaf with a yeast-based preferment.

The subtleties of proving a loaf using a ‘biga’.

How to shape a loaf using a hybrid recipe.

The final crucial steps and putting it all together to bake a 100% sourdough loaf.

cheers

Hi - that was July 2007...
now March 2008, I'm getting 403 Forbidden errors from *all* the links above - like this:

Forbidden You don't have permission to access /2006/06/30/beginners-blog-a-starter-from-scratch/ on this server.

Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.



... which, to say the least, is a great pity.
