Be careful, it's a slippery slope once you start. The quality of home made bread is just something special. Time, effort, and appreciation for the good stuff! Good luck, & Cheers!

Great looking loaves! Can't beat homemade sour dough bread. The stuff is very forgiving. When you get tired of the dutch oven loaf try making some Focaccia on a sheet pan. I found the cast iron corn bread skillets make perfect single serving size.

Our son is a chef in Australia and folks love the sourdough bread he bakes for the restaurant. At one time he was making 150+ loaves per week and selling them to other restaurants under a different business name! I once asked him for a recipe and he recommended the Tartine Bread book by Chad Robertson. He also recommended buying a good scale for measuring ingredients.

Yes, a scale is a must for me when baking. Consistency is crucial for repeatable results.

I tell people that cooking is an art and baking is a science.

One of my room mates used to be a chef, I don't know if it was at McDonald's or Wendy's. He tried to discourage me from baking by telling me I had to measure all of the ingredients for baking very precisely and exactly and he was not capable of being precise enough. I just bake anyway, I do the best I can without wasting a bunch of time on it. It tastes good to me, much better than store bought, and if other people don't like it I can always throw it in the garbage. Yesterday he was talking about how difficult it was to make bread and how long you had to wait for it to rise etc., you could stand there and watch it and nothing would happen. I found out it was easy to make bread, I am used to working, and I do other things while the bread is rising I don't stand there and watch it.
