Pastry and Bakery Recipes Recipe Name: Pizza Napoletana (Peter Reinhart's “Bread Baker's Apprentice” delayed-fermentation method The key is the overnight fermentation. Ingredients Method

Yield: 6 ptn Equipment

4 1/2 cups (600g) unbleached high-gluten, bread, or all-purpose flour, chilled 1 3/4 tsp salt 1 tsp instant yeast 1/4 cup olive oil (optional) 1 3/4 cups (420 ml) water, ice cold (4°C) Semolina flour or cornmeal for dusting

1. Stir together the flour, salt, and instant yeast in a 4quart bowl (or in the bowl of an electric mixer). With a large metal spoon, stir in the oil and the cold water until the flour is all absorbed (or mix on low speed with the paddle attachment), If you are mixing by hand, repeatedly dip one of your hands or the metal spoon into cold water and use it, much like a dough hook, to work the dough vigorously into a smooth mass while rotating the bowl in a circular motion with the other hand. Reverse the circular motion a few times to develop the gluten further. Do this for 5 to 7 minutes, or until the dough is smooth and the ingredients are evenly distributed. If you are using an electric mixer, switch to For a tomato sauce: the dough hook and mix on medium speed for 5 to 7 Smashed Tomato Sauce minutes, or as long as it takes to create a smooth, sticky 1 can (28 oz) San dough. The dough should clear the sides of the bowl but Marzano tomatoes stick to the bottom of the bowl.

If it begins to stick to your hands, lay it down on the floured counter and reflour your hands, then continue shaping it. Once the dough has expanded outward, move to a full toss as shown on page 208. If you have trouble tossing the dough, or if the dough keeps springing back, let it rest for 5 to 20 minutes so the gluten can relax, and try again. You can also resort to using a rolling pin, though this isn't as effective as the toss method. 7. When the dough is stretched out to your satisfaction (about 9 to 12 inches in diameter for a 6-ounce piece of dough), lay it on the peel or pan, making sure there is enough semolina flour or cornmeal to allow it to slide.

The American "kitchen sink" approach is counterproductive, as it makes the crust more difficult to bake. A few, usually no more than 3 or 4 toppings, including sauce and cheese is sufficient.

Yield: 6 ptn

8. Slide the topped pizza onto the stone (or bake directly on the sheet pan) and close the door. Wait 2 minutes, then take a peek. If it needs to be rotated 180 degrees for even baking, do so. The pizza should take about 5 to 8 minutes to bake. If the top gets done before the bottom, you will need to move the stone to a lower self before the next round. if the bottom crisps before the cheese caramelizes, then you will need to raise the stone for subsequent bakes. 9. Remove the pizza from the oven and transfer to a cutting board. Wait 3 to 5 minutes before slicing and serving, to allow the cheese to set slightly. Makes six 6-ounce pizza crusts. On the sauce: You can use San Marzano (Pomodori Pellati) to create a wonderful, and simple pizza tomato base. Use a potato masher to get a good sauce consistency. DON'T use a food processor or hand mixer, as those will break the seeds and give your sauce a bitter flavor. If you are using a brick oven, you should not cook the sauce. The hot oven will cook the sauce perfectly. If you are using a pizza stone in your oven, you might want to try cooking the sauce first. Try it both ways to see what you like.

Pastry and Bakery Recipes Recipe Name: Basic Vera Pizza Napoletana Dough from http://www.fornobravo.com Ingredients Method 500gr Molino Caputo Tipo 00 flour 325gr water (65% hydration) 2 tsp salt 2 tsp dry active year

Yield: 4 ptn Equipment

We highly recommend cooking by weight. It is fast, and easy to get the exact hydration (water to flour ratio) and dough ball size you want. Personally, I do not use recipes or a mixing cups when I cook dinner for the family, but pizza and bread dough is different. Being exact really counts, and nothing works better than a digital scale. Mix the dough in a stand mixer, by hand or in a bread machine. If you are using a stand mixer, mix it slowly for two minutes, faster for 5 minutes, and slow again for 2 minutes. Cover the dough and let it rise for 1 1/2 - 2 hours, or until double. Punch it down and push out the air bubbles. Form the dough into a large ball, then cut it into 4-5 equal pieces. To make your pizza balls, shape each piece of dough into a ball. Gently roll your dough into a ball, then stretch the top of the ball down and around the rest of the ball, until the outer layer wraps around the other side. Pinch the two ends together to make a smooth ball with a tight outer "skin." Set your ball seam-side down where it can rest. Dust your pizza balls with flour, and store them under a damp towel, in a proofing tray, or under plastic wrap. This will prevent the outside of the ball from drying out and creating a crust, and becoming difficult to work with. The top of the pizza ball should be soft and silky. Your pizza balls will need to rest for about an hour to become soft and elastic, so that they can be easily stretched into a thin crust pizza. If you won't have an hour to let your dough rest, read our strategy. By cutting back each phase of dough preparation by the right amount, you can make great pizza or focaccia dough in as little as an hour. Dough in A Hurry In the perfect world, pizza dough takes about 2 1/2 hours. In our experience, the real world often doesn't work that way. Many times, we simply decide to make pizza late in the day (or after work), and don't have the time for the full 2 1/2 hour rise. Luckily, pizza dough can be rushed -- without too much

Yield: 4 ptn

Here is how you should rise your dough, based on how much time you have: • • • •

2 hours: 90 minute in bread machine, shape pizza balls, 30 minute rest 90 minutes: 60 minutes in bread machine, shape pizza balls, 30 minute rest 75 minutes: 60 minutes in bread machine, shape pizza balls, 15 minute rest 60 minutes: 45 minutes in bread machine, shape pizza balls, 15 minutes rest.

Check your dough the first few times you make it, to be be sure that it is not too sticky or too dry. Add a Tbl of flour or water to correct the dough if you are off, and remember what you had to do. After a few experiments, you can stop checking, and get on with other things. We think you will find that your own dough, even under imperfect conditions, is much better than anything you can buy -- particularly if you are using great flour and great olive oil. It also doesn't have any of the preservatives or trans-fats that you can find in pre-made dough.

Let dough rise at room temperature until doubled in bulk, about 1 1/2 hours. (Dough will be sticky and full of air bubbles.) Have ready a rimless baking sheet and 2 well-floured 12- by 6-inch sheets parchment paper. Turn dough out onto a well-floured work surface and cut in half. Transfer each half to a parchment sheet and form into an irregular oval about 9 inches long. Dimple loaves with floured fingers and dust tops with flour. Cover loaves with a dampened kitchen towel. Let loaves rise at room temperature until almost doubled in bulk, 1 1/2 to 2 hours. At least 45 minutes before baking ciabatta, put a baking stone or 4 to 6 unglazed "quarry" tiles (see note, above) arranged close together on oven rack in lowest position in oven and preheat oven to 425° F. Transfer 1 loaf on its parchment to baking sheet with a long side of loaf parallel to far edge of baking sheet. Line up far edge of baking sheet with far edge of stone or tiles, and tilt baking sheet to slide loaf with parchment onto back half of stone or tiles.

Pastry and Bakery Recipes Recipe Name: Sacher Torte (The Real One!?) There are many stories and myths about the origins of this famous cake. The version I know was told to me by Jurgen David, one of my pastry teachers at the French Culinary Institute. He is Austrian and worked for a few years at the Sacher Hotel, making countless numbers of Sacher tortes, and he swears this is the only authentic recipe for Sacher torte.

Yield: Makes one 9inch, 2-layer cake; Serves 12

Sometime in the 1830s, Emperor Franz Josef, of the Austro-Hungarian empire, asked his pastry chef, Eduard Sacher, to create a less filling cake than the whipped cream-filled ones then in vogue. At the time, Mr. Sacher was working at Demers pastry shop in Vienna, where he created for the emperor the jam-filled cake we know today as Sacher torte. However, after he left Demel’s pastry shop and established his own establishment--the Sacher Hotel--he continued to bake his cake. This is how a dispute arose between Demers and the Sacher Hotel about which was the authentic cake. Eventually the dispute was settled and laws were put into place about which ingredients are allowed in an authentic Sacher torte and how it must be prepared. Today, only Demel's and the Sacher Hotel in Vienna are allowed, by law, to inscribe the name Sacher on their cakes. The only change I have made is to substitute unsweetened chocolate (which Europeans do not use) for the bittersweet chocolate so that the glaze is less cloying.

TO MAKE THE CAKE Big mixing bowl 1. Position a rack in the center of the oven and Strainer preheat to 175C. Butter a 9 x 2.5-inch springform medium mixing pan and line the bottom with a parchment or bowl for merengue greased waxed paper circle. 7 Tbsp (100 g) unsalted 2. In a big bowl and with an electric mixer on low butter, softened speed (or with a stationary mixer fitted with the Scant 1/2 cup (56g) paddle attachment), beat the butter for 1 minute, or confectioners' sugar, until light. Add the confectioners' sugar and beat sifted for 2 minutes longer. 6 eggs yolks 3.

Scrape down the beaters and sides of the cooled bowl and beat for 1 minute longer, or until smooth. Add the melted chocolate and mix until combined. 4. In a separate bowl, whip the egg whites with a 6 egg whites pinch of salt until they form soft peaks. With the Pinch of salt machine running, add the caster sugar, about 2 7 Tbsp (100g) caster tablespoons at a time, and beat until the egg whites sugar are stiff and glossy. With a rubber spatula, fold ½ the egg whites into the batter. Transfer the flour to a strainer and sift it over the batter as you fold it in 3/4 cup plus 1 Tbsp along with the remaining beaten egg whites. (100g) cake flour + 5. Transfer the batter to the prepared cake pan, 2 tsp baking powder smooth the top, and set the pan on a larger baking sheet (to catch the drips). Bake for 40 to 45 minutes, or until a tester inserted in the center comes out dry. 6. Cool the cake to room temperature in the pan on a wire rack. Run a knife around the cake to loosen it from the sides, then unlock the springform and lift the cake out of the ring. TO MAKE THE FILLING 7. Turn the cooled cake upside down onto a cardboard round cut slightly smaller than the diameter of the cake. Remove the metal base and peel off the paper. With a serrated knife, split the cake horizontally in two and set aside the top layer. El Limón, Ltd ©

Remove the saucepan from the chocolate, finely heat and stir until smooth. chopped 11. Pour the hot glaze back and forth over the top and sides of the cake. Be generous as you pour so that the sides get covered, because the glaze can't be moved once it is on the cake. If there are any unglazed patches on the sides of the cake, use a small offset spatula to patch the nude spots with more glaze. Let the cake stand for I hour before transferring it to a plate or platter. Storage: Keep at room temperature, under a cake dome or an inverted large mixing bowl. Refrigerate only after a couple of days, but bring the cake back to room temperature before serving. Note: If you are so inclined, write the name Sacher on top of the cake with piping chocolate. Or cover the top with crystallized flowers.

Recipe Name: Peter Reinhart's Pizza Ingredients 5 cups all purpose flour 1 Tbsp sugar or honey 2 tsp salt (or 3 1/2 tsp kosher salt) 1 tsp instant yeast 2 Tbsp olive oil 1 3/4 to 2 cups roomtemperature water

Method

Yield: 4x 10-inch pizzas Equipment

Combine all of the ingredients in a large mixing bowl and stir vigorously with a wooden spoon or mix in an electric mixer. After you've combined all of the ingredients, set the dough aside to rest for 5 minutes. Stir again for 3 to 5 minutes, adding more water or flour if necessary. Generally speaking, you want the dough to be wetter and stickier than your typical bread dough. It should be dry enough that it holds together and pulls away from the side of the bowl when you mix it, but it doesn't need to be dry enough to knead by hand. Divide the dough into 4 pieces. Place each one into an oiled freezer bag. I just squirt a couple of sprays of spray oil into the bag. You can also brush the outside of the dough with olive oil and then place it into the bag. All that matters is that you be able to get the dough out of the bag later. If you aren't going to bake them that day, you can throw the bags into the freezer. They'll stay good in there for at least a month. The evening before you intend to bake them, move the frozen dough balls to the refrigerator to thaw. If you intend to bake them later that day, place the bagged dough balls in the refrigerator. Remove them from the fridge and let them warm to room temperature an hour or two before you intend to bake them. Remember that, as a baker, time is your friend: longer, slower rises at reduced temperature result in better tasting bread. But sometimes you don't have the luxury of time - that is OK; this dough will still work well if only given an hour or so to rise at room temperature. Allowing pizza dough to rise is more about giving the yeast time to bring flavors out of the wheat than it is about leavening. Most of the leavening occurs when you put the active dough into the hot oven, so you don't need to wait until the dough balls double in size. Surely you can prepare the dough an hour before baking, can't you? That'll give you time to make the

Pastry and Bakery Recipes sauce, grate the cheese, and get the oven hot. Speaking of which, it is time to put together a sauce. Getting Saucy Once again, there are a million different pizza sauces. If you already have one you like, feel free to stick with it. Or consider doing something totally different, like using pesto or barbecue sauce instead of a tomato sauce. I throw this recipe out because it takes under 3 minutes to make and is quite good. Once again, it is from Peter Reinhart's pizza book. The Sauce: 1 28oz can crushed tomatoes 1 teaspoon dried basil 1 teaspoon dried oregano 1 Tablespoon garlic powder or 4 or 5 cloves of crushed garlic 2 Tablespoons red wine vinegar or lemon juice, or a combination of the two salt and black pepper to taste Stir everything together. If the tomatoes are too chunky, break them up with your fingers. Fresh tomatoes or herbs can be substituted for canned tomatoes and dried herbs. The fresh tomatoes don't even need to be cooked first, since the time in the oven baking is enough to cook them. Shaping I am not experienced enough to do the whole "throw the pizza into the air" thing. My technique for shaping the dough is extremely simple. I pick up a ball of dough and gentle stretch it into a circle. Once I've got a circle four or five inches across, I hold it up by the edge and, while rotating it, let the weight of the rest of the dough pull it down to stretch it out. When I start feeling resistance in the dough, I set it down on a lightly greased plate to rest for 5 or 10 minutes. Then I pick it up again and stretch it a little thinner before lying it down to add the toppings. I like to stretch my dough quite thin, until it is almost transparent. If you like thicker pizza dough then, obviously, don't stretch it out so much. El Lim贸n, Ltd 漏

Page 37 of 69


Pastry and Bakery Recipes You can use rolling pin to shape the dough. Doing so results in a more uniform dough with numerous small holes. I personally like the dough to be thinner in the center than the edge and to have a thicker, bready crown full of large irregular holes around the outside. This effect is difficult to achieve with rolling pin, but if that suits your taste then go for it. Topping and Preparing for Baking Before you put the toppings on the dough, you need to know on what surface you intend to bake the pizza. If you have a pizza stone, it should be put in the oven and getting hot (450 or 500 degrees) by now. If not, the back of a cookie sheet works fine. If you are going to try transferring your pizza from one surface (like a peel or a cookie sheet) to another (like a hot pizza stone), I strongly recommend using parchment paper under the pizza. Particularly if you are going to add a lot of toppings to the pie: the extra weight pressing down tends to make the dough stick to the surface you dressed it on. You could also try to sprinkle corn meal or semolina flour on the surface hoping that will be enough to let you slide the dough without sticking - in my experience, though, it rarely is; I've had many pizzas end up looking like roadkill because they wouldn't to come off the peel smoothly. I've cut the number of swear words I use in the kitchen in half just by springing for a 5 dollar roll of baking parchment and placing a piece of it under the pizza. I just grab a corner of the paper and tug it into place when it is time to slide the pizza into the oven. Much, much simpler. Whatever surface you decide to dress the pizza on, sprinkle it with corn meal or semolina flour and spread the dough over it. Add the sauce, the grated cheese (typically mozarella and parmesan, but there is no reason you can't improvise), and toppings. Baking As I mentioned earlier, most of the rise you get from pizza dough actually happens in the oven. Professional pizza ovens are much hotter than home ovens. At home you typically want to make pizza at the highest temperature that your oven can safely handle, like 450 or 500 degrees. Baking on a pizza stone will give your dough a little more pop when it gets in the oven but it is not necessary to make good El Lim贸n, Ltd 漏

Pastry and Bakery Recipes pizza. If not the lowest shelf, then the second to lowest is probably the best place to bake your pie. You want the pizza to be as close to the heat source as is possible without burning. But every oven is different, so adjust accordly. Place the pizza in the hot oven, close the door, and let it bake for 5 minutes. Check it every minute or two until the cheese is melted and the dough looks baked. In my oven with the size pizzas I make, I bake them for 7 to 9 minutes. Pull them out, slice them, and eat! The Pizza Spectrum As I mentioned, there are dozens of dough recipes for the endless different styles of pizza. The most traditional recipe includes nothing but flour, yeast, salt, and water. Adding a little bit of oil makes the dough more supple so that it can be stretched easier and is softer to the bite. Adding a touch of sugar gives the yeast something to snack on. And more yeast can be added to guarantee a rise even for heavily topped pies. Some general recommendations, based on a couple of the more popular styles of crust: •

Thin and Crackery - Add less (or no) oil. Try using some high protein bread flour, like one out of five of the cups. Stretch the dough extremely thin. Bake it on a pizza stone or as close to the heat source as possible without burning it. Thick and Chewy - Substitute milk for half of the water. Add more oil or shortening to the dough. Increase the sugar and the yeast by half again. Don't roll the dough out so thin. Bake it up a shelf or two in the oven so that it can bake longer without burning.

Any of the other techniques you've learned for baking bread can be adapted for pizza: sourdough, the sponge method, including whole wheat flour, even grilling, which I will write about when the weather warms up. So use your imagination! If other folks have dough recipes they've had good experience with, I'd love to have them share them El Limón, Ltd ©

Bake for 45 to 60 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes on a wire rack, before remving from the pan. Time Saver: Making quick breads and freezing it is a great way to have a grab and go breakfast. Cool your just baked bread completely over night. Slice your bread into what ever thickness you prefer. Place one slice each in a zip lock baggie and freeze. Either defrost the night before, or open baggie and microwave thirty seconds.

Pastry and Bakery Recipes Recipe Name: L’ORANGE – Orange, Chocolate and Almond Cake Recipe Ingredients 170 gr bittersweet chocolate •

• • •

• •

2 oranges, preferably organic 1+1/2 sticks (12 Tbsp) butter, at room temperature 1 cup sugar 4 large eggs, at room temperature 1+2/3 cups (180g) almond flour 2 Tbsp cocoa, sifted 1+1/3 cups lacquer chocolate glaze (recipe below)

El Limón, Ltd ©

Method

Yield: Equipment

Prepare the lacquer chocolate glaze (recipe below) and set aside (it takes an hour to cool down) while you prepare the cake. 1. Preheat your oven to 150C.. 2. Butter a 23cm round cake pan, line bottom with parchment paper and set aside. 3. In a double boiler melt chocolate over low heat, remove from heat and stir with a spatula until smooth. 4. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat sugar and butter on high speed for a minute. 5. Finely grate the zest of two oranges directly into the bowl (so that all the fragrant oils are captured) and beat on high speed until light in color, for 5 minutes, scraping the sides of the bowl as necessary. 6. Add the eggs, one by one, beating until well mixed after each addition. 7. Add the melted chocolate and beat on medium speed for a minute until you have a smooth batter. 8. Remove bowl from mixer and fold in the almond flour and cocoa with a spatula. 9. Evenly spread the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 40-45 minutes, until puffed and domed in the center with a slight fracture 1 inch from the rim. A toothpick inserted in the center will come out with few moist crumbs. Allow to cool to room temperature for 20 minutes. 10. Place a cardboard circle or tart bottom on top of the cake and lightly press to even out the surface. Invert the cake and place on a cooling rack set over a large, rimmed baking sheet (you can also use a long double layer of wide heavy-duty aluminum foil) to catch the glaze. 11. Remove parchment paper and have ready the lacquer chocolate glaze. 12. Pour the glaze in an even circular motion on top, starting with the sides, allowing it to cascade over and coat them completely.

Pastry and Bakery Recipes Recipe Name: L’ORANGE – Orange, Chocolate and Almond Cake Recipe

Yield:

Start pouring in the middle and as the glaze starts going down the sides, pour the glaze about an inch from the edge to help cover the sides evenly. Reapply glaze as needed. 1+1/3 cups of glaze is enough to cover the cake in a single shot, but you can use the glaze accumulated in the baking sheet if needed. 13. Allow the cake to sit for about half an hour until the glaze stops dripping, then move the cake to a serving plate. 14. Allow the glaze to set for 4 hours. It can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature and will keep fresh for two days. If you plan on refrigerating the cake, it will keep fresh for 5 days in an airtight container, but make sure to bring it to room temperature before serving for fullest flavor by taking it out of the refrigerator 2 hours beforehand (and a brief wave of a hair dryer set on low heat will bring the shine back).

Method

Yield:

Equipment

1. Pour cold water in a small mixing bowl, sprinkle gelatin over the top, give it a stir, cover with plastic and set aside. 2. In a small saucepan, whisk together sugar and 1/3 cup water over medium heat. When the sugar completely melts, take off heat and with the help of a wire whisk, stir in corn syrup, followed by the cocoa. You’ll have a smooth and glossy mixture. 3. Stir in heavy cream with a spatula and return pan to medium heat. Bring the mixture to the boiling point, remove from heat and strain into a metal bowl. Cool until an instant-read thermometer reads 50 – 60C, for about 15 minutes. 4. Stir in softened gelatin until completely dissolved. 5. Strain the glaze into a bowl and let cool until an instant-read thermometer registers 26-27C (best temperature to glaze the cake; if you’re making this ahead, make sure to reheat to 29C as it will be thicker). The recipe says this will happen in a few minutes, but it took an hour for the glaze to cool down to 26-27C (and I’ve made it twice so far).

Pastry and Bakery Recipes Recipe Name: King Arthur's Favorite Blueberries Muffins This is the ne plus ultra of blueberry muffins, the imaginary blue ribbon winner at the state fair, the top of the blueberry muffin heap. Based on a Nieman Marcus recipe , this recipe produces meltingly tender muffins, chock-full of berries and gilded with a light cinnamon-sugar topping. Ingredients Method

Yield:12 muffin

Equipment

Preheat your oven to 190°C. Grease 12 muffin cups generously; a vegetable oil pan spray works well 6 Tbsp (85 g) butter 3/4 cup (150g) sugar 2 large eggs

In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until they're light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.

2 cups (240g) Flour 2 tsp baking powder 1/2 tsp salt 1/2 cup milk 2 tsp vanilla extract 1/4 tsp almond extract 1 1/2 to 2 cups blueberries, either fresh or frozen Topping 1 Tbsp sugar mixed with 1/2 tsp cinnamon (optional)

In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the creamed mixture, and beat well. Stir in the milk and vanilla. mixing only until smooth. Quickly stir in the berries. Note that frozen berries will probably turn your muffins blue, while fresh will keep the cake part golden. Fill the muffin cups 3/4 to almost full, using all of the batter. Sprinkle with the cinnamon sugar. Bake the muffins for 25 to 30 minutes, until they're light golden brown, remove them from the oven, and place the pan on a rack to cool for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, run a knife around the edge of one muffin, and try to lift it out of the pan. (These muffins are very tender, and if they don't cool long enough, they'll crumble when you try to remove them from the pan.) If the muffin lifts out of the pan without crumbling, remove all of the muffins and cool them completely on a wire rack. If the muffin sticks or the top peels off, allow them to cool an additional 10 minutes, then try again.

1. Night before making dough: Make leaven (Group 1) "Discard" all but 1 Tbsp of starter. Feed with rest of group 1. Cover and rest in cool and dark place 10 to 16 hours. To test leavener "readiness", drop a spoonful into a bowl of roomtemperature water. If it sinks, it is not ready. Keep till passes test. 2. Night before baking: Make dough (Group 2). Pour warm water into a large mixing bowl. Add leaven. Stir to disperse. (Save your leftover leaven; it is now the beginning of a new starter. To keep it alive to make future loaves, continue to feed it as described in step 2.) Add flours and mix dough until no bits of dry flour remain. Let rest in a cool, dark place for 35 minutes. 3. Add Group 3: salt and remaining warm water. Fold dough on top of itself to incorporate. Transfer to container. Cover with kitchen towel. Let rest for 30 minutes. The dough will now begin its first rise (bulk fermentation), to develop flavor and strength. (The rise is temperature sensitive; as a rule, warmer dough ferments faster. Robertson tries to maintain the dough at 26C to 28C degrees to accomplish the bulk fermentation in 3 to 4 hours.) 4. Stretch & Fold dough, repeating 4 times, every 30 minutes. After the 3 hours, the dough should feel aerated and softer, and you will see a 20 to 30 percent increase in volume. If not, continue bulk fermentation for 30 minutes to 1 hour more. 5. Divide & Preshape: Pull dough out of container using a dough spatula. Transfer to a floured surface. Lightly dust dough with flour, and cut into 2

Yield:

pieces (1 Kg recipe) using dough scraper. Work each piece into a round using scraper and 1 hand. Tension will build as the dough slightly anchors to the surface as you rotate it. By the end, the dough should have a taut, smooth surface. 6. Dust tops of rounds with flour, cover with a kitchen towel, and let rest on the work surface for 20 to 30 minutes. 7. Final Proofing: Line 2 medium baskets or bowls with clean kitchen towels; generously dust with flour. Slip the dough scraper under each to lift it, being careful to maintain the round shape. Flip rounds floured side down (seam side up!). Using the dough scraper, transfer each round to a basket, smooth side down, with seam centered and facing up. Let rest at room temperature (26C degrees), covered with towels for 2-3 hours before baking or better flavor, cold ferment: Cold Fermentation: As for scoring your loaves, one trick that works well is doing the proofing in the refrigerator for 8-12 hours as he suggests for a more complex flavor. This has the added benefit of scoring into a stiffer dough and avoiding the wavy lines that may result from a soft dough. 8. Bake the Bread: Twenty minutes before you are ready to bake the bread, preheat oven to 250C degrees, with rack in lowest position, and warm a 9 1/2-inch round or an 11-inch oval Dutch oven (or a heavy ovenproof pot with a tight-fitting lid). 9. Score top twice using a razor blade or a sharp knife. Turn out 1 round into heated Dutch oven (it may stick to towel slightly).Cover with lid. Return to oven, and reduce oven temperature to 230C degrees. Bake for 20 minutes. Carefully remove lid (a cloud of steam will be released). Bake until crust is deep golden brown, 20 to 25 minutes more. 10. Transfer loaf to a wire rack. It will feel light and sound hollow when tapped. Let cool.

1. Day Before. Mix group 1. If using a mixer, use paddle and mix at lowest for 1 minute, until well blended and smooth. Let rest uncovered for 5 minutes. 2. Knead by hand --or medium low speed -- for 2 minutes. Dough should be smooth and not sticky 3. (Or do a series of "stretch and fold" with10 minutes intervals). 4. Transfer to a bowl and refrigerate overnight, or better, pre-shape batard, let it rise till double and then refrigerate overnight. 5. Baking Day: Remove dough from fridge 2 hours before baking. For baguette, divide the dough in 283g pieces. Form into baguettes, mist top with spray oil, put in cloth (couchon), cover with cloth, and let rise 1 1/2 times (1 hour?). 6. Pre-heat oven to 250C and prepare for hearth baking. 7. Just before baking. Score the dough with serrated knife (1/2 inch deep) or razor. Pour 1 cup of hot water in oven pan (steam), lower temp to 232C. 8. Bake for 12 minutes, rotate the pan and bake for another 15 minutes (center of bread must be 90C). 9. For a crisper crust, turn off oven and leave the bread for another 5 minutes before removing. 10. Cool bread for at least 45 minutes before slicing.
