So I decided I may as well sign up and introduce myself.
My name is Giselle, I’m 24 and I am a bakeaholic..more accurately a foodaholic? Luckily I have recently found a gym habit so I can support said addiction.
I’ve been lurking for awhile and since I finally found a place to order some of these FABULOUS sounding books ( I live in Australia and even the place I found with only 2 weeks postage times -cost a small fortune!)
I have made basically everything I could find on this website.. and although I had a few disasters with bread in the start, now that I have found a gluten additive and some amazing flours that just aren’t available in supermarkets here I think that will completely change and I’m going to re-make those sweet potato rolls but in a loaf with some pumpkin seeds tonight.. *drool*
I’m absolutely so keen to start my own starter as welll, by god do I love sourdough and the best sourdough place in sydney that also happens to make the most amazing sour olive loaf often runs out by 11am every morning and I am often left cursing my late nights!
I’ve been baking for awhile, and have a cake and cuppie business in Sydney in it’s infancy currently running on word of mouth but I’m building my website at the moment (Did I mention I’m apparently quite the geek? lol)
So yes, have been lusting after these books for quite a bit and am now practically jumping out of my skin to start baking my way through the cake bible and the bread bible..
Although I am pretty happy with most of my recipes i really want to learn the “science” you know? I for whatever reason don’t own any other cook books so everything I have made has been trial and error, or from a website with much recommendation!
Anyway I am off to make some mini Portuguese custart tarts, my special choc biscuits and that bread for a picnic style baby shower tomorrow.
Can’t wait to bake with you all =) But did I say that like 50 times already…?
