Are there any full length videos available?

Hi,


I am trying to find DVDs of bread baking hopefully artisan bread baking and can't find any.


Are there any DVDs exist?


Thanks, David

I have the 'Making Bread' video from Back Home Bakery that Mr. Frost speaks of and found it very helpful.  I also have some videos done by Ciril Hitz who is a baking instructor at Johnson and Wales University and an instructor at King Arthur Flour.  Mr Hitz does a great job of each subject in his videos.  His web site is breadhitz.com and you can sample his videos on YouTube by typing in "breadhitz" in the search feature.  It will bring up about 15 short videos.  Hope this helps.

For the Holidays last year, my husband bought me all of the "Daniel's Rustic Bread" videos and the 2 sizes of linen for proofing.  I've been very pleased.   Peggy

www.breadtopia.com has several very good bread videos.  Plus a lot of recipes.

Hi


I've posted videos here, which are also available on You tube.


See: http://www.thefreshloaf.com/node/16082/laminated-yeasted-dough-construction and http://www.thefreshloaf.com/node/15953/crumpets-and-muffins and http://www.thefreshloaf.com/node/15382/ananda039s-2nd-blog-hot-cross-buns and http://www.thefreshloaf.com/node/15230/ananda039s-blog


Regarding Hamelman and Reinhart: I think they have contributed so much already; it seems a bit trite to ask for more.


Best wishes

Hi David,


Mine are fairly amateur, but I've used them to teach students in college quite successfully, and have had good feedback from users on here, and on YouTube.


The Ciril Hitz series really are excellent [the ones I've seen anyway].   He's a seriously good baking instructor on the level with Hamelman and Reinhart.


But if you want the real superstar, why not lokk here: none other than Professor Raymond Calvel himself!? http://www.ciaprochef.com/fbi/podcasts/BreadAndBaker.html


Best wishes


Andy

Hey David,
Of course my videos that mrfrost mentioned, I think are pretty good (wink, wink). The preview videos are fairly representative of the material in the DVDs so you can make your decision based on those.
I also own a couple from Hitz and Calvel and like them too.  Both of them (esp the Calvel videos) provide more background information than I do, as I try to focus on techniques more than the analytical aspect of bread baking.
