How To: Hand knead dough

Hand knead dough

This video shows you how to hand knead dough in the traditional French way. Your goal is to introduce air into the dough to add strength to it. Have a little flour on the table surface. Lift up the dough and slap it down on the table, trying to capture air into it as you let it fall. Do this for twenty minutes. Make sure that you make a quarter turn of the dough each time you lift it. It needs to be thrown about 600 times and when it is ready the surface will be smooth, with no bits hanging from it. That's it!
