    Mine is from Dehillerin, the mecca of kitchen stores. :) It's amazing how much I can get into my luggage for the trip home. If I had to ship it, the price would be insane.

    Let down your hair and try something new. The french bread pan is excellent anytime you want a long loaf. The perforations let your steam (you will need a pan of water) crisp up the loaves. The pullman pan is excellent anytime you want a perfectly square loaf (for Scandi open-faced sandwiches, for instance) but I usually use it for homemade black breads. They are richly flavorful and so need to be sliced thinly. This is easy with this shape (use an electric slicer - the home Hobart type).

    I tried baking bread once and it didn't come out too great. Best thing close to bread that I've baked was a homemade focaccia.

    When you are learning try a high gluten flour if you have been unsuccessful in the past.

    Virginia, birthplace of Presidents, mostly good ones.
    I have my favorite yeast bread recipes, bread puddings. And long ago a try at puebo bread that i swear would rival bricks as building material. The family still talks about that one.

    Lately experimenting with daughter grinding our own wheat and then bread baking in the oven. Can't find a suitable or desirable bread maker.

    I've made biscuits over an open fire and on the stove even. a la lonesome dove.
