New Kneading Video-Excellent!

I was just over at The Back Home Bakery looking at Mark Sinclair's Tutorial videos. I wanted to remember how he rolls up his sweet sticky buns in preparation for making Franko's Pineapple up side down rolls. Mark's videos are really excellent and I thoroughly enjoy going back to the DVD collection to remind me how to do things he does every day and I do once every few Months.

While I was enjoying the Jazz, watching his vids, I noticed he has a new shaping video that is amazing. The guy is magic with his hands I swear. The new video shows how to gently shape several dough mixes masterfully and end up with a perfect Batard. This is something I struggle with and it kills me how easy he makes it look. The pinky fingers are his secret! Check it out here.

He really has a gift. I is in the pinky as well as the general consistency of the dough. Notice there is nothing on his board to prevent sticking. Really a treat to watch. c

I have always been impressed not only by Mark's shaping talents but also by his ongoing generosity in sharing the videos on line.  Thanks again Mark.

Not to mention private communiques and internships... obviously, he cares about those around him.
