So Simon Thomas of Staff of Life had the dough bowl over the weekend and tweeted the whole process of mixing, kneading and proving 3kg of dough in my carved bowl.
This is a multigrain loaf with malted & rye flours and caraway. The dough was proved for approx 40hr due to Simon teaching artisan baking to a group on Sunday.
According to Simon: “The doughbowl is very easy to mix in and contains the rise easily too. Remained very stable while mixing. I put a damp tea towel under to stop it slipping on my steel worktops. I do like it.”
I will be carving more of these bowls, if you’re interested in finding out more please email me.
It certainly tasted good.
