I am very comfortable in the kitchen and love cooking and baking. I want to enjoy cooking as easily as baking.
My favorite things to cook
If I may bakers "bake." I enjoy making doughs from scratch and am very comfortable with old-fashioned cake yeast baking and could make a sponge for 120 qts. rye bread in minutes without any enhancers etc.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Our family business specialized in Czech and Am. bakery products, but alas the 40 pan hearth oven is sadly no more.
My cooking triumphs
I used 55 lbs. of cake yeast for the last holiday I baked, all for hand-made products. What fantastic production for a small business.
My cooking tragedies
I knew all my routine recipes off the top of my head and weighed many things by eye. A younger boss simply could not understand. However, if you leave the yeast out, the dough will never raise! 30 qts of Sweet bread!
