Q&A with Sartorialist

hansity asked:
Looks good!
Sartorialist answered:
Thanks! It really did taste good. I'm not sure how to get those big giant bubbles in the bread though... But, I'll keep working on it. I think the instructor suggested not moving the dough too much, avoiding removing the air pockets.
Janice asked:
Wow. I like the cuts in your baguettes. Amazing job.
Sartorialist answered:
Thanks! I haven't received my French 'lame" yet for Christmas, so I just used a razor blade. That seemed to do the job. But, I am a sucker for kitchen tools.
BWTurner asked:
Great job of scoring with resulting nice bloom. I'm still working on that part!
Sartorialist answered:
I loved the YouTube links you posted about scoring... when my "lame" arrives I will give it another go. The shaping videos from the same site are really interesting too. I need to work on my crumb. I don't get those giant open holes like they show in the videos... yet!
