Decided to make a thread for all the bread heads in the city that have a love for the loaf! There are some very skilled bread makers here, I however am not one of them LOL! So I am learning as I go and building a shopping list to get started on my first bread making experience. I encourage everyone to have open discussions about anything bread related they have going on as I will learn a great deal from watching others processes, discussions and results! On my list so far I have: 1) Any book/information by Peter Reinheart ("Crust & Crumb", "Bread Makers Apprentice", "American Pie", "Whole Grain breads", etc) or any information from "Steve Sullivan (Acme Bread - one of the original, original artisan bakers to revive this art over 33 years ago), Chad Robinson (Tartine Bakery - probably the best bread baker in America), Jeffrey Hamelman (head baker at King Arthur Flour - one of only 15 CMB in America [Certified Master Baker] and Ciril Hitz" -CC 2) Lodge Cast LCC3 Pre Seasoned 3quart Dutch Oven 3) Need to find a Yeast to use 4) King Arthur Flour if possible 5) Bakers Digital Scale 6) Pure Sea Salt of Kosher What else is it that I will be needing to get started on this amazing new journey?
