Lesson learned: Its easy to follow a recipe, but its hard to cook.
What I mean by this, is that there are some great tutorials out there. I am following a fantastic one now. But when you go out alone, is when it can be really tricky. Tutorials are often recipes for some sort of technology. And while I can follow a recipe to make bread at home, I certainly couldn’t just combine flour, yeast, water and salt and get what I want.
Needless to say this is a humbling experience, but then so is everything worth while.
