Let's Knead the Dough

What! After all this talk about no-knead bread, you're now suggesting we start kneading dough again? Well maybe. Check out this video that I find quite seductive. Of course, the setting really helps with a spectacular view of the ocean. Watch the way the accomplished baker handles the dough to strengthen the gluten fibers. His wood-fired oven is truly a humble one, probably not insulated and without a "real" door, and yet, in spite of it's limitations, it bakes bread. We can avoid so many complications if we could just keep it simple.

I don't know for sure, but it has that west coast look.
