I have been making bread for years and have quite a range of experience in this area. My interest is mainly in eating good quality bread as I find the processed bread that comes in thinly sliced packets only fit for the occasional treat and not suitable for everyday use. I have also talked and lectured on baking bread.
This site is set up from my own personal perspective and is not meant as a definitive guide. It should be used as a guide to good practice, but there are lots of other personal improvements to aspire to in addition to my ideas.
