All my other hobbies seem to be about food

My wife Toni does most of the cooking, but I'm the baker of the family. We haven't bought bread for years. I really missed the great bread from the years we lived in Italy, so I have concentrated on reproducing those, as well as the occasional sweet. Here's some photos. Nam, nam, nam...

    Holy Grissini! I love any kind of bread and these on the pictures look yummy! What kind of oven do you have?

    I have two small countertop ovens that I bake with. One is the Westinghouse CSV steam oven that I use for bread that needs steam. The other is a Cuisinart pizza oven. I usually use both, steaming in one and finishing in the other.

    Thanks, Nette! No, no bakeshop. The quickest way to take out the fun is to turn it into work. I have considered the local seasonal farmer's market, which would give me flexibility.
