Day 1 of my baking course and i absolutely loved it. Got my whites on this morning and my new crocs (essential baking footwear - thanks nat!) and felt really excited about the prospect of making my first loaf of bread ever.
Up until now, have felt slightly fraudsterish as I was the only one on the course that hadn't actually baked a loaf of bread before, bearing in mind I plan to open an artisan bakery in around twelve months time this was a big day for me!
Well here they are (the basic wholemeal loaf made with shipton mill organic flour)....would love to have shared my first loaf with you all but just imagine the warm smell of freshly baked bread and your there in spirit. Its a special feeling that you have created something wonderful. So far so good !
