...for taking the time to share so many recipes with us. This has gone into my to-do list, right after the festive season (christmas and chinese new year) is over.

I enjoyed looking at the photos of the german breads in your gallery.

I also really appreciate your recipes and pictures... I lived in Monterey California for a couple of years ... er...  a long time ago.  My daughter was born there, and cut her teeth on sourdough crusts.  The sourdough here on the east coast is largely fake or chemically made sour.  So I lost interest in crusty sourdough breads.

But a few years ago a local grocery here started bringing in Par Baked Portuguese Pao, Saloio Rolls and Whole Wheat Padinha.  We got hooked but the prices just kept going up and up.  So I decided to start looking for recipes and started noticing a lot of great sourdough sites and Blogs...  and so much more about real breads. 

I also noticed that not too many Portuguese are giving away recipes in english.:?   And also that each region of Portugal has their own specifically named recipes for bread and rolls.  We had visited Portugal, the Region near Southern Spain, when we were in Spain.  The bread there was so amazing!  I think that some of the best European bakeries still use long fermentation or Sourdough to have the best tasting breads.

By the way did you say your Grandmother made sourdough... You don't have her recipe do you, Hint, hint, wink, wink;)
