In a past life, I was a professional pastry chef and now bake for myself (and Instagram) in a small apartment with a standard gas oven using only simple equipment. All the ingredients can be bought at a supermarket, or by all means support local flour mills and producers if you are able. Different ingredients will get different results, but all will be delicious. Each step is broken down in detail with photos so you can follow along and catch any misunderstandings before they ruin your bake. Feel free to leave questions and comments.
