The amateur baker
You may have noticed over the pages of this site, I am passionate about everything that is related to the bakery: I love making bread, pastries, maintain my leaven, etc..
This page contains links to all the different parts of the site where we talk about bread: recipes, special pages, etc.
Note: Since January 2018, I'm on sabbatical to follow bakery courses (passion ladies and gentleman, not less than passion!). Return back around mid june, with great improvement of all pages listed here.
