Cutting to control expansion
Created 2008 Mar 10 - 22:48
I thought I'd post this topic as it did arise in another thread. Some bread made today exhibits the practice clearly.
Below; two loaves from the same dough scaled at the same weight, proved in the same baskets yet cutting/slashing made a significant difference to the type of expansion, appearance and charcater of the final loaf. Behold the art and craft of baking which is responsive to every touch.
