Baking is something I’ve long enjoyed and more recently, something I’ve been wanting to improve in and learn more about.
I work as a general music teacher and have extra time on my hands during the 8 weeks of “summer vacation.” In the past, I’ve used that time to do such things as….exercise vigorously, learn to knit, do wedding research, plan and finally enjoy our wedding (in 2011).
My plan for summer 2012, is to “home school” myself in baking. As you probably know, going to a professional culinary school to study baking and pastry can be very expensive. And although I might really enjoy it, I don’t currently have the time or budget to manage it. (Especially since I think it unlikely that I would trade my current FUN, exhausting, and not especially well paying profession for another…FUN, exhausting, and not especially well paying profession)
I will be using this blog to keep track of the new things I lean and new recipes I try. Wish me luck!
Oh! If you’re an experienced or professional baker or pastry chef, feel free to chime in. I would greatly appreciate the help.
