Why I want to be mentor: As a passionate home baker and a former teacher, I am delighted to combine both skills.
Lesson Learned: With a basic sourdough recipe, there are numerous variations you can make. This type of baking takes a lot of time and patience.
Tip: If baking two batches of sourdough, you can start one in the evening, refrigerate it overnight to rise, and then start another batch the next morning. You end up with double the amount of bread with very little additional time.
Why I want to be mentor: I take such joy out of the activity of baking and sharing bread, and this would be a way to expand the joy.
Lesson Learned: Most people like bread, and most will adore it if it is homebaked, which is not all that hard to do. It is not at all expensive, but creates a sense of abundance when incorporated in a party or any meal. The variety possible is limitless.
Tip: It only takes as much time as you want to spend to make very good bread daily.
