Shaping sourdough loaves

17 June 2009

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.

Howdy and welcome to my site! I'm Laurie and I'll be your, er, hostess today. :)

I'm a Canadian expat currently living in Singapore. I'm married to a Sri Lankan and lived in Sri Lanka for nearly a decade. We also lived in New Zealand for half a year.

I cook Sri Lankan curries, sambols, and mallungs. I bake bread using wild yeast (sourdough that isn't sour). I bake on the stove. I experiment with Indian / Malaysian / Indonesian / Thai / whatever cuisines interest me. And I experiment wildly.

Life is an adventure. Join me! :)
