Kaiser roll shaping
Ten or more years ago, nbicomputers (Norm Berg, may he rest in peace) made a video of the traditional method of shaping kaiser rolls. This question came up yesterday because my younger son posted some photos of rolls he had recently made which included some "kaiser rolls." He said he had shaped them in the traditional way, but what he really made was knotted rolls which are quite different. Now, Joel's rolls look delicious, and I'm sure they are, but they irked by bread geek nerve.
I went looking for Norm's video and found youtube had taken it down when his account was cancelled, presumably after his passing. But I found a couple other good videos, one in Spanish and one in German, and thought they might be of interest to any TFL Kaiser rollers.
There is also a good verbal description of the technique in Ginsburg and Berg's "Inside the Jewish Bakery." See pp. 117ff.
