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 seen various TV shows where a health inspector uses a device to measure the cleanliness of a kitchen surface.

Does anyone know about where these devices can be found?

Is there an updated link to take the quiz for the knife skills podcast?  There was one given in the comments section of the podcast, but it is a broken link

Thanks

Hi I had succes The first time I watch the video on sourdough starter and how to make a boule, it must have been a fluke as now 2 and half weeks of trying and almost 4kgs of flour later I cannot get my starter to float, I told 2 of my friends about the videos and they have been trying for a week and they havent been able to make the starter float either, 2 of us are using filtered water and 1 is using rain water so I doubt if its the water, we are in winter in Melbourne Australia so the temp inside the house is min 8c max 19c weve all been following the instructions closely, Ive even tried

For a while, I've wanted to experiment with a "Peanut Butter and Jelly Bread." Given how well the Brioche Hamburger Buns have turned out, with all their buttery goodness, I'm considering using Jacob's Brioche loaf recipe as a starting point. 

I have googled around for existing "Peanut Butter and Jelly Bread" recipes, but most of them seem just to swirl the peanut butter and jelly into the dough, producing something that would be difficult to slice, toast and handle.
