  1. Hi Chris, the way we do it, is you swirl a strip of 4 cm by 25 cm long. The tighter the less developed it will go. it will slightly pull longer as your swirl it. Close the two edges together and bring the sealed piece over itself on the other half to create your eight. don’t make the holes too big and let proof. Once proofed the shape should remain but no gap in the boucles should be there. Fill with very dry jam or frangipane and fruit amd bake immediately
  2. Hi, i have the book - it’s really good. One of our friends has taken his class and he is really good at what he does great panettone section as well as brioche, much less on croissant. You can also find good stuff with Johann Martin, the new bellouet and conseil book. once you get a few ideas the rest follows. I heard of a school in San Fran for croissants work. Because truly 90% is the ensemencent that will make the croissant layers remarkable
  3. So now batgirl has gone back to her land of pasta (for now), the American didn't get delayed (unlike me). Batman is sleeping still before she goes and shows off in toronto and me I'm delayed 2 hours for now. So I m catching up on my missed days. So as Kerry mentioned 4 days of show 2 focused on trade 2 for chocolate lovers. Well needless to say we killed it. We did demos,and chocolates OK not any chocolates raspberry or hazelnut or strawberry mango. People loved it.we also pulled a 72% Saint Domingue out of the blue. Let me tell you it was bomb. 💣 Anyway like Kerry told you g

  5. Hey hey hey... It's not really the girl the issue the time in Amsterdam has been crazy busy. They made the show go from 9:30 to 6pm and then there's setup and clean up which adds another 2 hours and my boss (Kerry) is not here. I have to admit these adventures without Batman just don't feel the same. I mean batgirl is awesome but nobody beats Batman. Enough métaphores back to Dan dam. So I think one of the first reasons why I didn't write was because of the fumes... Not the car ones but more so hashish ones. I think I was stoned every day. People spend their time huffi
  6. So it’s not that I dropped off the face of the earth but the last two days have been go go go. Where did I stop. ah haircut... then we rushed to the Van Gogh museum. But just before we had lunch in a tourist Amsterdam tavern. We all got to enjoy local dishes lol. I have fried eggs on white breads. Bianca (aka Belle) had a salmon club sandwich and mushroom veggie omelette. All this for the lump sum of 50€. That’s what happens in tourist locations. We digested the meal running to the appointment made to visit the art. i was a big fan o Van Gogh for some reason
  7. Surinamese food is very close to Asian style. In the end I was quite confused. Roti, soups, deepfried, with a lot of potatoes and carbs. its not spicy but all the condiments tend to generate heat somewhere. At this point all I know about reducetarian is to minimize the consumption of all “harmful foods” but I think it’s mainly a myth. Now that she is making her way into my life we will change that to “highrodneytarian” loooolllll. We are now waiting at a barber shop because the other boss didn’t plan ahead.

  9. So I was at dinner, the two North American men are starving... did i mention Bhavani doesn’t eat meat or drink and his beautiful sidekick is a reducetarian (this “lifechoice” did start a whole can of worms - story for later) so back to starvation we are starving. Sidekick 2 (Valentina) recommends a few “good eats” to choose from. we decided on a dinner Surinam inspired. so we get a taxi - us tourist got taken on a lonnnnngggg ride with a not so honest taxi. This is where I will advertise for UBER. so Surinam fast food joint half luxuri
  10. It’s a rice milk to clean the wheels i discovered we can do nut milks with the DCM melangers
  11. Ok so day one has come to an end. It’s not like travelling with my Batman me being Robin. so the hotel to start. 7 floors high ( we learned that buildings in Amsterdam can’t be too high because of water) let’s just say that my room is the biggest out of 3. Bianca and Bhavani literally have what I call a shoe box - stretch your arms out and touch the walls or even better pee, shower and brush your teeth at the same time. so yeah aside the massive luggage to drag - I got lucky food of the day, I declined breakfast in the plane in exchange of 30 min of sleep. Unfortu
  12. Landed - oh my god the have wind mills in the water by thousands. its 8c which changes from my -15 expected diner was high end plane food let’s just keep it at that. got to sleep so ready to attack the city let’s reconvene in a few hours. In the mean time let me leave you with some pictures
  13. Flight delayed... my butterflies are killing me - found this in the lounge no the buns are ace bakery but we make many of their products now. Seems like we will make more soon 🤞
  14. Spoiled... I would say tasteful or maybe lack of? Hum... I spend too much time on the posh chair at this point. Flight delayed, computer and phone charging. Can' wait for the plane food... Yum Beef wellington with the same texture as beef bourguignon.
