This is not a blog about how to make professional artisan bread. I love baking bread, and I love how baking bread makes me feel – and most of all, I love eating the bread that I make. But I’m not a professional baker.
I love baking bread because homemade bread tastes soooo much better that any bread you can buy at the grocery store. Once you get the hang of it, the bread you make yourself is actually better than ANY bread you can buy anywhere. In addition, you know what’s in it.
Baking bread is not difficult (although I have to admit it took about 20 breads before they even started looking like proper bread …) but it requires patience and commitment. I wouldn’t say it requires time – because it is quite possible to adjust your baking teqnique to accommodate your lifestyle. But once you are in control of that process, once you know what it takes to make a nice bread – it is addictive. So be warned. Baking bread might influence your life. It might even improve it.
On this blog I intend to publish recipes, tips and tricks that I’ve picked up on my baking journey, thoughts about bread – and whatever comes to mind as long it is related.
Happy baking! Or happy contemplating about bread and life … Either way – hope you’d like to join me on this philosophical bread baking journey.
I'm Currently living in Florida, USA, but I'm Norwegian born and bred. At the moment I enjoy baking bread and blogging about it. I enjoy blogging in general, because I like writing. But I'm trained as an illustrator, originally ... in England. One day I'll write a book. About bread. And illustrate it myself. Maybe. Life will see.
