When you press the center of a roll or loaf with a small dowel for final shaping, it is called a "fendu". What is it called if you press it in opposite directions making 4 equal divisions? Thanks, Paulav
I am having trouble accessing users' blogs, pages and forum participation pages. I log in, search for a user, and more often than not the users' pages turn up blank. What am I doing wrong?
My ambition is to build a brick wood fired oven in my back garden, can anyone recomend a good book with plans and building instructions. I plan to use as much reclaimed material as possible to keep the cost down, so it will take me a while to collect what I need. In the meantime, I need to read and to plan my adventure.
Thanks in advance,
I feel a little bad about a post like this, but I just wanted to share the excitment: I received my fidibus classic yesterday, after having "visited" it daily for the last six months! Some preliminary observations:
I'd be going to US, and researching to get a stone and perhaps some bannetons as well from there, carry it back all the way here.....:) (hopefully it won't break along the way). How heavy does pizza baking stone weigh? Does anyone know if there's any place within Charlotte, NC, US that I can shop for some baking supplies?
We're purchasing a home that has an outdoor fireplace and we both would like to convert it if possible to a pizza oven. Can anyone provide sites that show conversions and how to do it if at all possible. Thanks!
