The other day an Italian gentleman visited my bakery and asked me if I could bake his favorite bread from Milan the Michette (rosette). I had not heard of it. He countered with "I brought you the recipe". This turned out to be an awful google translation of a wikipedia page. I am quite adept at searching the internet and soon found a link to an italian site with the method/recipe that I could understand. He was delighted with the result and has threatened to round up all the Milanese expats here in Malaysia and get them to order the bread.
Moving on. Since then I have been viewing more Italian sites and found these two gems of women making bread in their homes using the dough trough. I think they ae quite old films and hopefully provide some insight to mixing without electric powered mixers.
The texture of the dough is so wonderful. Enjoy
