This 45-minute video presents simple and foolproof methods for starting bread, with an emphasis on learning the “feel” of perfect finished dough. The step-by-step demonstration of the keys to successfully making light and nutritious breads at home “opens the door to a satisfying and delicious activity, and gives explanations that go far beyond any cookbook.” (New York Times).
How to Conquer Bread Baking takes you through kneading bread by hand, shaping your breads, glazing and baking. Also, there’s a section on how to convert recipes to the food processor and the heavy-duty mixer. This video is a must-have for any beginning baker.
“Betsy Oppenneer’s video is full of tips, tricks and techniques – certainly helpful to anyone baking bread. Definitely designed to give confidence to the beginner. Wish I had this when I was starting out.” (Peter Kump of Peter Kump’s New York Cooking School).
