Every once in a while I see some "kodak moments" in the bakery; so I keep a camera handy. Here are some shots form last week. Above are some shot of your Olive levain being mixed. I'm not sure what it is, but watchng the mixer work on dough is a tranquil meditation; it's just very relaxing to watch the dough hook move round and round through the dough.
This is the Volkornbrot (the 100% rye bread) in the mixing process and final product. Volkornbrot is a very wet dough and usually a very difficult to dough to manage because it's so sticky. But it's a breeze with my spiral mixer.
I am experimenting with new cuts on the Chocolate Babka. What do you think?
