Baker wannabe from TN

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey all. I just joined and thought I'd say hi. I'm into baking more than actually cooking. Cooking kind of feels like a chore to me. Haha. I'm looking forward to learning a lot while I'm here.

Hello Celendra and welcome to Chef Talk. As a baker you'll find plenty to draw your interest in this community. We have two baking and pastry forums: one is for all who are interested (the Pastries and Baking General Forum) and one reserved for professionals (the Professional Pastry Chef's Forum), but which everyone can read and enjoy.

I'm ja home cook who is just getting back into bread baking after a long hiatus. My early efforts were hit and miss. I've learned a lot here that has helped me, notably how gluten behaves and how kneading and resting affect the finished bread. In fact, I have some bread in the oven as I write this. It's made from my grandmother's challah recipe. :lips:

We hope you explore the whole board! Don't miss the cooking articles, coobook reviews, recipes and the photo gallery (which has many photos of wonderful baked goods and pastries). I hope you visit and participate often.

I noticed that you said Challah bread. Are you or your grandmother Jewish? We enjoy Challah bread as a family every Shabbat buut have not found a very good recipe from scratch. I usually pick it up at the bakery. Can you suggest one?
