Interesting Video for Bread Bakers
Hope you made or had some great pizza during this holiday weekend. I, on the other hand, doing my patriotic duty, opted for burgers, baking them in my Primavera 60 WFO oven at 1000 degrees F. in just under 2 minutes. Talk about fireworks! Burgers just don’t get any better than firing them hot and fast. But that’s a story for another time.
I just received this following link from our friend and correspondent, Teresa Greenway, of Northwest Sourdough. It shows a unique way of scoring a loaf of sourdough bread in order to create a sunflower pattern. Check it out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WZhiw0DjTgI&feature=youtu.be
Also, Teresa has been offering a number of freebies, prizes, as well as inexpensive instructional courses via her own website. Here’s the link to her most recent post: http://www.northwestsourdough.com/scoring-a-sunflower-loaf/
If you’re a serious bread baker and haven’t subscribed to her mailing list you are missing out on some great stuff.
Meanwhile, we’ll be back next week with the final installment of our webisode series from Marco’s Coal-Fired Pizza (aka, Racca’s), and lots more new postings to come throughout the summer.
