Cutting my teeth

So, how did I start baking bread? It started with a bread maker, but after a few months I got frustrated with the limitations: the crust was always disappointing & I personally found it very hard to add extra ingredients like seeds & grains. 

Then, something wonderful happened - my good lady wife got me a days bread making course at River Cottage for my birthday. I'll probably do a post about that at some point as it was a great day.

So, I moved beyond the bread-maker: a pizza stone was dragged from the corner of the kitchen & moved into the oven where it was used on a weekly basis to provide the heat for the dough to spring off in the cooker.
