Trust you are well?
Just letting you know that Denmark bakery has just won first prize at the Perth Royal Show for the Wholemeal Sourdough free form section. I would personally like to thank you for running such wonderful informative classes, even though I have only attended one of your beginner classes which was about two years ago! The information gained has was invaluable and we are now producing sour-dough breads on a commercial scale.
I have been a baker for 34 year now and can honestly say I have never been more excited about winning a first prize than I was at this year’s Perth Royal Show. Nearly all of my formal training was about producing the perfect looking loaf. It have to be square and it had to have a texture that of a sheet of white paper. To be honest modern day square bread has very little flavour and is not that pleasant to eat – however sour dough on the other hand has a rustic look and the smell and flavour is mind blowing and a real joy to pull out of the oven, when cut or pulled apart the open texture and aroma makes your mouth water instantly.
I hope your new batch of students appreciate the myriad of opportunities they are receiving by doing your courses as I have.
Again thank you for imparting your knowledge in sour-dough’s and hope to catch up again soon.
