My name is Lluïsa and I'm from Barcelona. I've been baking at home for some years but only three weeks ago I did my first sourdough starter. Excluding the two first loaves, which were a complete failure, all my bread is coming out surprisingly delicious. Two days ago I discovered this wonderful site full of information and kind people.
Yesterday my starter was so active and energetic it compelled me to bake something else. I tried LeadDog recipe for croissants and followed it by the book. When I was done forming the croissants it was too late, so I put them in the fridge covered by a cloth. This morning, after some 3 hours proofing at room temperature, my croissants looked just the same and I thought: another failure. But they cooked well, sprang in the oven, just by the glorious smell I could tell they were good.
I'm so proud and happy, I had to share it with you
