Bread


Here's a little movie about making bread. It was sent to me by one my art tutors of last year. He is a frenchman, living in New Zealand, and, predictably, one of the things he really misses is good bread. Coincidently, it arrived shortly after Jay made a great post about the gulf between good bread and the commonly-available 'Chorleywood' method bread.

I can't decide if I would call this 'The Art of Making Bread', 'New-Age Bread-Making', or an 'Art Film' about bread-making.


All I know is, if you make bread by hand every day, you get muscular arms, and it's not quite the soft, dreamy experience shown here!

  1. Thanks for the link to this very pretty video. I have to disagree with the muscular arms comment; once you get into high-hydration breads, and techniques like stretch and fold, aching arms are a thing of the past.

  2. My pleasure, Jeremy. Your comment is interesting. I shall have to investigate.
    Welcome to TLVD, by the way. Nice to see a new face.
