bread baking goals

having flipped through The Bread Bible i was intimidated.
but when i had a few quite moments to really read though it, i was less so.

i think the pages on mixing and creating the sponge are by far the most intimidating. everything else sounds pretty straight-forward and familiar from my years in bakeries. once i thought about it, the chilliness of my house is less a consideration because its only chilly when i am not there and will only be baking on weekends. so all in all, i think i should start gearing up for my first trial.

the five types of bread i want to master are:
1. challah
2. pugliese
3. sourdough
4. semolina
5. artistan wheat

this weekend i think i will try my hand at challah, i'll report back.
