Here’s another video on shaping loaves. This one demonstrates shaping two French-type loaves and one boule, and the lady who’s demonstrating it, Natalie Greenway, makes it look so incredibly easy. At times, her fingers fly too fast and it’s difficult to see exactly what she’s doing, but with practice and effort, I ought to be able to get much closer to figuring it out. 🙂
What I can tell you is that, on the one hand, she moves her loaves around a lot more than I do, but on the other hand, she seems to be much gentler, too, even while getting the job done so much better than I’ve ever dreamed of.
