If you've never baked fresh bread, you're missing out on something special! It's not just about the delicious, crusty loaf of artisan bread you can enjoy in tasty gourmet sandwiches and dip in hearty, homemade soups! It's about choosing your own ingredients and knowing exactly what's going into the food you eat! It's about the cool sensation of kneading dough by hand, pounding it into a dusted board, plopping it into a loaf pan, and enjoying the rising aroma that fills your entire kitchen!
