GALLEY WENCH'S MENTOR PROFILE
Hi, I'm Galley Wench.
I'm a mentor in Bread
My Bread Corner
Why I want to be mentor in this category:
To share my knowledge with others!
What inspires me in this category:
Wild yeast just amazes me . . .
I've been baking sourdough bread for over 30 years.
Biggest Lesson Learned:
Sourdough is like a pet, it needs to be feed regularly and it's home needs to be kept clean!
Books, classes, teachers that have helped me:
I think every serious bread baker should have a copy of Peter Reinhart's Bread Baker's Apprentice.
Education, Awards, Pro Experience:
I come from the Hard Knocks Baking School. I didn't have a mentor and learned the hard way!
- I'm a purest when it comes to Sourdough Starters and would NEVER use commercial yeast!
