problems getting dough out of bowl

December 4, 2009 - 1:26am -- tc

Hi everyone. I'm having trouble getting my dough out of the bowl/container without it sticking a great deal, despite spraying with Pam or greasing with butter. I think it's degassing my precious dough (I make pain a l'ancienne) and leading to less full baguettes. I usually let the dough rise in plastic tuperware containers. Any tips for how to solve this? Thanks!

Couche Question

April 15, 2008 - 2:08pm -- Eli

I proofed two batards last night in the refrigerator on a couche (homemade, I purchased duck cloth and hemmed the edges, foured it and keep it in a plastic bag with two cups of flour. I roll it around every now and then to keep it floured. Anyway, for the first time the loaves stuck to it like super glu. I managed to take a razor and gently peel them off. I will post pix later. I then took the razor and gently scraped off the stuck dough. Question (hours later) should I shake it out and then wash and try to re-flour or just reflour and leave it alone.
