I was watching an unusual movie from on demand named Sring 1941. There was a scene that place in a Polish farmer home. The female farmer inserted a peel into an old oven in the wall and pulled out aloaf of bread htat looked like it must weigh 4 or 5 kilos and had a hich dome which I understand is not typical of a miche.

Does anyone have any recipe, instruction,comments on such a loaf.

 I thought the movie which took place in Poland in 1941 as the Nazi's invaded was a good movie but expect to do some crying especially at the end.    Herb

Help with Hobart mixer

July 28, 2008 - 8:02am -- karmayarn

I just was given a 30 qt Hobart mixer with a dough hook, wisk and paddle.  I am not a professional baker but I do like to bake bread.  I have two questions;  How much is the mixer worth? I would guess it is about 20 years old but it looks like new.  I'm just curious.  My second question, which is more fun, is where can I find bread recipes to make such a large quantity?  I'm getting some friends together to make a jumbo batch of bread dough that we can then divide and freeze.  Any suggestions?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.
