    Help with All-Butter Pie Crusts

    Julia Child called that technique "fraisage" or "coming down from the mountain", smearing the rough ball of dough with the heel of the hand. It flattens the butter leading to a flakier crust.

    Mauviel and Bourgeat Copper Cleaning

    BF imho is too abrasive on the copper itself. First, I'll try using citric acid. But I like what you state concerning the "black buildup" on the bottom of the pan.
