Links to videos on kneading by hand

Happy Thanksgiving to all.


For what it's worth, you will find below a handful of links to videos that demonstrate hand-kneading technique. I encourage others to add comparable links herein, so this thread might become a reference point for TFL posters with questions on the topic.


Links were current as of Nov. 25, 2010.


The first video features world-class baking teacher Richard Bertinet demonstrating his slap and fold technique. He is working with sweet dough, but I believe he recommends a similar approach with other doughs.

Excruciating video on how to shape a baguette. Please do not try this at home

September 18, 2010 - 1:28pm -- bnom

I was looking at Ciril Hirtz' excellent video on shaping baguettes and stumbled across this "Expert Village" video showing the "cut and pull" technique for shaping a baguette.  It is so bad it's funny.  There are several other videos by this same fellow taking one through the entire process.  In one he explains that steam is used "because the moisture from the water kind of vaporizes and soaks up inside the bread giving it that nice pillowy softness inside."  


The "cut and pull" technique for making an "authentic French baguette bread"

Hello, I am a new member and I love this site! So much great information. I ran across these videos of Tim Hayward of the London Guardian and wanted to share the links.

I read about Zingerman's pretzels made with lard and lye in the New York Times. Here's the recipe:

The article also talks about their baking classes. Here's a 1 minute video about them:

Hey there everyone.  Well I'm emerging out of hibernation to tell you about my latest project.  Last spring I started working on a couple of instructional baking DVDs but I never finished them before the busy season hit.  Then when I got back to work on them this fall, I decided to re-shoot the whole thing and spend some more time on them. 


Well, I just got finished.

Hi there, I had this video on Youtube for a while already but I though I'd share it here.


Video was made in a bakery south of France where I used to work last year. I doesn't really help for home bakers to see this because I got all the tools and machinery (especially pastry break) But I know some are interested to see how we manage to make lots of those in average size bakery.


This bakery has average of 150 croissants 150 pain au chocolat per day which is a bit more than average typical french bakery.
