Sourdough and Digestibility with Vanessa Kimbell

Accomplished baker, Vanessa Kimbell wrote a great post on “Sourdough and Digestibility.” I was very interested to read her post because I have people frequently asking me this very same question. In my own family I did some experimentation (with willing, no actually demanding subjects) with the digestibility issue.

Baking Equipment – Pan Sizes – Dough Trough

I’ve had a lot of people asking me about my dough trough I use in my videos. I kept telling people they are 1/4 size Cambro Translucent  food pans with lid (it’s what they were called when I purchased them, only it may have been wrong). I gave out links but then there seemed to be a problem. Some professional sites were calling a quarter sized pan a half size instead. Sooooo I decided to do a bit of research on that because I have worked in bakeries and I know what a full size, half size and quarter size pan looks like. A full size pan in bakery terms is a large pan that bakeries use in their large ovens. Continue reading Baking Equipment – Pan Sizes – Dough Trough

Looking for Bannetons?

Besides Lucky Clover Trading Company, I’ve found these banneton selling at Amazon:

I haven’t used them so I can’t say whether they are good or not, but Lucky Clover has a 50.00 minimum last I heard so sometimes it’s better to just buy one or two. If you do a search on Amazon, you will come up with some good deals if you look for the lowest to highest prices in the search and not the relevant search. Many bannetons are still very high priced but some are really made with high quality materials.

Autolyse – Rest and Go to Work


Autolyse (Auto-Leese) is a term used in baking that refers to a simple method which improves the flavor and quality of bread. Essentially, the flour and water in the formula are mixed together and left to rest. The dough might be resting but the microorganisms are going to work.
