Plates

I was watching some of Jacob's videos and I really love some of the plates that he uses when he's at his restaurant (such as the tartare plate). Is anyone (or if you don't mind sharing Jacob) aware of a place where one would obtain such plates?

I've seen some nice plates but the ones that were nice were running $40-50 a pop, which just seems absurd for a single plate. I have some pretty cool looking plates at home but I'm always looking to expand, especially since it provokes creative plating. 

I sifted around the forums and I didn't see this topic created but I do apologize if someone has asked this question.

Most of the non-round plates I use are actually purchased online through Crate and Barrel's CB2 website. They're not super sturdy or made for restaurant use, but at a few dollars a plate, I can afford to break some.

I hope to eventually get nicer plate ware for Stella, but these get the job done for the time being.

Those look very nice. Thanks for the link. Have you bought anything from them before? I noticed that they don't have any prices; I'm just curious what they charge.

I haven't ordered in years but the prices were reasonable at the time and they are now the largest supplier of dinnerware inn the USA.  Request a catalog and let us know.

Just requested a catalog. I'll try and remember to post the pricing when I receive it. Thanks again for the resource. With how large they are I'm surprised I've never heard of them before.

Thanks to both of you! Exactly what I'm looking for.

I've been developing a seeded multigrain sourdough loaf with considerable success, if I do say so myself.

I'm interested in putting this on a firm mathematical footing in terms of baker's percentage.

In addition to bread flour, whole wheat flour, and rye flour, I'm using pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sesame seeds, cracked wheat, and medium cornmeal.

So do I add grams of the "extras" as I calculate hydration? Perhaps I count the cornmeal and the cracked wheat but not the whole seeds?

I'm happy with my sourdough rye, but my wife would perfer a less dense version, something more deli like.  She also, however, wants not to reduce the rye-ness.

I'm using 1 part Hodgson Mill whole grain rye flour to 2 parts major brand wheat bread flour..  It's at 65 percent hydration.

So what might I do assuming that I don't want to change the rye/wheat proportion?  I figure that proofing schedule, handling, or hydration could be variables worth looking at  But there's also oven temperature and how long the loaf's under cover that might have an effect.

I wasn't sure which bread forum to ask this in. What I'm looking for, or interested in creating is a list of common ingredients used in various bread, expressed as range of bakers percentages used.

I know it could be be almost any percentage I would like depending on my personal taste. I'm just talking in general, a percentage range for fats, sugar, eggs, potato flakes, dried milk, cocoa etc. that you would find in in various breads.

Hi chef Jacob and all forum users.

First I would like to say thank you for such a website. I really enjoy your videos and podcasts.

I want to ask a question if there is a way where you can list all the questions that you have ever asked or participated in?

I can't seem to find such a feature though it appears on some other forums that I'm linked up with such as the cha-cha developers website.

There is an option under my profile where I can list links to all topics I've contributed to.

I am working towards coming up with an equilibrium brine for a rotisserie chicken.  I am not considering Gradient brine in this case, as we would like to just soak the chickens possibly for 12-18 hours and directly cook them in the rotisserie directly out from the brine.  The goal for me is to reach the salinity range of 1% using the brine and the flavors/spices included.

Has any one worked on a brine like this and can help with some basic measurements to start on a brine for a 50 pounds whole chickens ??
