I have been listening to Stella Culinary/Free Culinary School podcast for quite a while now. I am really enjoying all the videos being produced currently. I haven't posted in the forum much so I might as well introduce myself. I am a mechanical engineering student at the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology. I am currently in AZ doing an internship for this semester and summer. I didn't start cooking until I started college. I reallized that I wanted to eat good food but I didn't want to go to resturants all the time so I decided to learn how to cook. I quickly became very passionate about cooking and I really like experimenting and trying new things. My "go to" tecniques are sauce making, braising and deep frying.
Looking on my sack of bread flour ingredients:
ascorbic acid (dough conditioner) - this would be an oxidizer in the presents of O2.
Doh-Tone - this is a mix of different levels of amylase and protease. Some flour use malted barley flour or you could add diastatic malt powder
Leaving out the yeast and salt at this point because of heat.
Mix the required amount of flour and water for Chef Jacob's Baguette recipe together at room temperature and do a stepped mash of the flour in the sous vide cooker.
