Videos of two talented bakers

I'm not sure how many people look at the food blogger site called The Fermenter, but he has posted a couple of amazing videos, one of a pizza shop:

and one of a guy rolling Indian flatbread:

After watching these videos, I think I need to bush up on my technique, or at least my swagger.


 


I wish you well,


Greg

He won some sort of international pizza competition in Naples this summer.


 


And here I felt so proud of myself last night because I shaped my pita breads by hand -- without a rolling pin. Took forever compared to those journeymen!

If you look under gregnim's wonderful video link of The Fermenter, go to the archives located on the left, and you will find a wonderful video of Tartine Bread with Robertson narrating! WOW!

The paratha roller was awesome! Also the person they were throwing to, who caught it every time, right and left hand!


Best wishes, Daisy_A

This guy was off the charts.  He focused only on the breads and work table and frisbee-tossed the flatbreads across the room to the catcher without ever looking.  While the catcher caught every pass, at least he was able to look at/for the incoming.  You don't want to ask how long these guys have been doing these jobs to gain that level of experience.
