Wow! thanks for trying my method Chau! Did it feel ok? It might take a bit of practice if you haven't done it before but i am sure you will be fine.
No problem for doing the video, if you ever want different ones just ask buddy.
Yeah, Paul I was feeling a bit nervous and unsure about the whole bread recipe in general along with "preshaping' method. I remembered your video when I was reading about preshaping in Hamelman's book, so I decided to watch the video again. Hamelman's method is very similar except he has you using both hands and the dough is rolled away from you instead of towards you. I like your method b/c you can actually preshape 2 doughballs at once, one in each hand.
It seem pretty easy to do actually. It was helpful b/c when i first was reading about it in the book and looking at their drawings, it wasn't super clear to me. But then it sounded like the technique in your video and when I watched your video again, it made a lot of sense b/c it easier for me to see it done than reading about it.
I'm curious to know what you did when you were at the bakery. Did you learn all the aspects of bread making from beginning to end?
