Calvin's Odyssey

When I began recording my bakes in a simple spiral notebook, I decided to title the collection "Calvin's Odyssey" as a bit of a laugh. The name stuck however, and now after a few different variations (notebooks, Word documents, and back to notebooks), and hundreds of bakes, I've decided to continue Calvin's journey through this online platform. 

This is a collection of my posts in chronological order. Some of these bakes will likely make it into the recipe section, some won't. Some posts might not even be about my baking, but chances are there will always be some sort of connection to Sourdough, fermentation, or making great food! I'll try my best to keep this updated regularly. Enjoy!
