I've recently taken up breadmaking (add lots of slurping noises and additional moaning about waistline here).
I bought a breadmaker to branch out into the land of yeast and scrummy goodies, a few months ago, and all was well, but as Sourdough and Rye have always been my favourites, I'm now starting on my first starter. Things are going okay, and I've decided that I need more equipment (my hungry work colleagues need to be more impressed than they already are).
I currently need a few things:
A decent baking stone and a round and oblong banneton. The stone I can manage, I think...perhaps a couple of large terracotta tiles from a tile shop? However, the banneton are a problem: I can't seem to find anywhere in London that supplies them. Surely I don't have to import them?
Any assistance will be much appreciated.
