Day 2 @ Ashburton - Making Bread

Here is Darrin, our fearless leader preparing the bread dough. We learnt the art of getting the dough to the right stickiness (stickier than I expected hmmmm), then gave it a good kneading, then did this little stretching manouver (the dough, not us. Although we did learn the chef wiggle and flick, more on that later). The stretch is in the photo below...

Then we left it to rise, knocked it back, then shaped it into rolls. Below are Darrin's. You can see mine with the soup in the next post
