I'm new and excited to be

Hi there,
I am so happy that I found this site to help me buy good cookbooks, advise me on baking and other yummy stuff. I am currently finishing up a pro baking course at a private little culinary school in West L.A. I couldn't afford the time committment or the financial responsibilty of the Cordon Blue in Pasadena. So I decided to do this school instead to find out if I really liked baking. I do. I would like to one day open up a diabetic/low carb pastry shop. I have been experimenting with different sweeteners and flours. But first I am going to test the market by selling at a farmers market, to see if there is an interest in what I want to do.

Welcome to you too, Smartsweets! Your plan sounds good. You might include pastry and baked goods for people with other conditions like celiac disease, etc. It might widen your market.

Enjoy the site! We hope you visit often to learn and share.

Diabetic bakery sounds fantastic! We eat a lot of cake where I work (not a food-related industry) and some people have dietary restrictions. The most difficult to deal with is the diabetic needs as the usual bakers here don't have the know-how or the ingredients on-hand when needed, it seems. So we go to a bakery for the diabetic. They charge an arm and a leg, so there is a nice profit margin for you. Good luck with it.

Hi

I am interested in this site, looks like a great cooking reference. I like to collect cook books, and cook at home. I also like to read about chefs, biographies and cooking magazines. Recently read Julie and Julia, Gourmet and purcahsed Staff Meals from a used book sale.

Hi,

The gluten intolerant world would love a place to purchase gluten free (GF) baked goods! BUT...we are also leary of GF items not made in a dedicated environment. The cross contamination issues in a non-GF place is huge. I'm not saying this can't be done - but you must be extremely careful when doing GF baking/cooking. Everything must be meticulously clean. In fact...many celiacs would not purchase items that were not made in a dedicated GF environment.

Good luck!

First time to a forum.

As a child, I use to joke around about having my own bakery to sell cookies and other baked goods. Now I have a strong desire to follow that dream...but where do I get started? Help?!! Any feedback would be appreciated. How can I go about to start my own cookie and baked goods business?
