Bread Rotation

I just recently finished the bread rotation at school. A sometimes really intense rotation, filled with changes, and constant watching. I actually really enjoyed making breads, whereas I was worried that I wouldn't. I worked with some great people and I think that made it easier, but it was still intense. I like making breads as it is all about touching the dough, you have to know what you are looking for (or feeling for).

The hardest part for me was mixing. I often had no idea about the density of the dough - should it be a wet dough, or a stiff dough? But I think I'm better at gauging that now.

I'm looking forward to dough's again in the future!

I love the smell of freshly baked bread and the different techniques of making bread. Pity I m not that good at that :)

These are beautiful! How on earth do you get such intricate stencils on the bread? I'm just trying to understand what you are...a cook? A pastry chef? Whatever it may be, you are SO SKILLED!!!!!!!!!!
