In researching my family, I discovered that in the late 1700’s my family were bakers in Elgin, Scotland. In the 1800’s and early 1900’s my Ggrandfather was a baker in Victoria and on the goldfields of Western Australia. Initially it was a trade, but then became a source of funding gold prospecting. Eventually the gold flowed.
I have always been a “foodie” and since my son introduced me to sourdough some 10 years ago, I have spent more time baking than cooking. With so many food blogs available, I’ll only post recipes or opinions that I think are unique in some way.
