Question about this batteton and liner please

I was wondering if someone could answer a few questions about the banneton and liner that is in this move (at 4:35 seconds) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RgqPli_sLLM


My questions are


1) Is that a wicker bowl or does it just look like wicker?


2) What brand is it and where can I buy it?


3) If it is wicker, can it still be used without liner so I can get spiral look on my crusts?


 


thank you in advance

1.  Wicker.  


2.  TMB Baking via San Francisco Baking Institute


3.  You certainly can. Buy a wicker basket and one of the linen liners.


Edited to add that if you don't have a couche, the linen fabric at TMB is awesome and will serve you well.  Their liners are made of the same linen.

hi,


 


here in Europe the material used for these baskets is called "Peddigrohr" which translates into Rattan. but it doesn´t really matter what you call it - the bread looks great when used...



happy baking,


Mike
