Today I made bread with Mr M @ B.Restaurant.
Its my new favorite thing!
(These burger buns, although look sweet, are temperamental.For some reason they dont want to look like the puffy cloud-like buns as seen in the above picture. Instead, they want to be flat, disk-like pucks. Not cute.)
Bread is difficult. There is NO room for error.
Or silly mistakes.
And I feel like I am the definition of silly mistakes.
I was loading the baguette dough into the oven today.
And when you are doing that, you have to be FAST when sliding the unbaked baguettes off of the paddle (called a “peel”) into the oven. If you arent quick, the dough turns crooked. And your nice baguette is now the letter “J”.
And that is ugly.
Well, today I told Mr.M that I could do it.
I had done it before – easy.
Weelll..as i was unloading the dough off of my peel-stick, I somehow managed to drag one of the baguettes out of the oven – and onto the floor.
Don’t do that.
8 + 4 does NOT equal 15
Don’t go to the bathroom – and forget that- you have bread almost done in the oven. You will burn it.
More examples to come, I’m sure..
