Curious to know if anyone has experience with the SFBI instructional videos. They're not free but it looks like they have over 200 videos to choose from. Seems like a good way to improve your skills without having to make the trip to San Francisco.
King Arthur Flour has created a wonderful video series called Techniques for the Professional Baker which are awesome.

Okay Breadies, you've got to visit this website to see your passion in a 26 minute video from gourmet magazine. Kick the kids out of the room, grab a cup of coffee, turn up the volumn and enjoy!

For a while now I've known about the existence of a set of three VHS tapes: "Bread & Baker: From the Source". It is a 3 tape set (VHS) which has Prof. Raymond Calvel teaching, in detail, the production of various types of bread as part of his visit to the Culinary Institute of America. It was co-produced by the BBGA (Bread Bakers Guild of America).
