This and That

 

I would like to let everyone know that my 16 year old son, Wyllis, is back to making the lames again. He finally got enough equipment here in Hawaii to get back to production.

The  lames are even more beautiful than before, being made from a Hawaiian wood, Koa. I will be offering one of Wyllis’  lames (which I bought from him) free to one of the people making a comment on this post.

This is to help jumpstart Wyllis’ little business. His lames are available for sale in my store at: http://www.northwestsourdough.com

.

In another direction, I would  like to ask anyone who has used a gas/propane and an electric oven to comment on which type of oven they like best for baking and why.

I have a small propane oven right now and Ihave a lot of trouble getting it to bake a good loaf of bread. I have problems with uneven heating, and mottling of the crust.

I don’t know if it is just this oven or if gas/propane ovens in general have problems with baking breadstuffs, but I sure would like your opinion on the matter.

.

Also, I would like to encourage you to visit one of the most talented bread bakers I have known at: http://mariana-aga.livejournal.com/
