Videos on how to make bread

Virtuous Bread has lots of bread making videos because videos are a great way to learn.  Our videos show you ways to proof dry yeast, knead dough, and shape dough - baguettes, loose balls, tight balls (cobs), loose sausages, tight sausages, and buns....all the basic shapes you need to get going.  It's all in the kneading and the shaping!  Many of the videos are intended as teaching aids to go along with the book All You Knead Is Bread, published in October 2012.

Remember - there are plenty of ways to do anything and these videos give you just a sample of the countless ways to make bread.

    Dear Madam,

    Please can you tell me how you get 250grms of water which is a dry weight, surely it must be mls or pints, this is in the simple rye loaf, which says 300grms of rye and 250grms of water. Thank you

    Hi there, I put a jug on a digital scale and weight it for more precision. However, a gram is a ml so if you only have cups, measure in mls and you have the same thing.
