    Why my bread came out heavy and too hard?

    I am not a baker but I was always under the impression that you don't use yeast for true sourdough? I believe that almost all bakers cheat by using yeast and some vinegar for flavour for the entire process and I aknowlege that you said you use your starter, and I know here in Australia that...

    This one didn't turn out as good as what I'm baking now... the puff pastry lid didn't rise and the filling although very flavoursome was a little dry. It's all a learning curve and I look back now and know the mistakes I made! Still, it's the only pic I have so it's here for others to comment on!

    I've uploaded a few pics of the pies I cook from home- these are Aussie individual gourmet savoury meat pies. I am not sure how to make them appear in this reply (I'm on an iPad so struggle with copying and pasting) but please check them out in my album- any comments, advice and criticism will...

    That's exactly what I'm looking at buying- and pretty much in that order too lol. I bought a mixer at an auction- a Hobart HL200 Legacy. Should do the job. Now it's the oven... I do have domestic type fridges (one a 540L) and an upright freezer (with full height drawers) but I'm sure I'll need...

    Yes it does help a lot- thank you. The pie-making videos I've seen show bakers in smaller bakeries all using these pie trays and what they do is use a long thin timber dowel almost like a broom handle to roll the pie lid in between each row of pies and then again at 90 degrees so the...

    406 x 655mm are this particular pie tray manufacturer's sized tray for the oval pies I'm looking at producing. Their link: http://www.mackies.com.au/bakery07_pie.htm I have been shopping for used ovens for some time now and you are right- some describe their deck ovens as bakers deck ovens...

    ddelights I hope you got your answer as now I'm going to hijack your topic lol!   Foodpump if I bought an electric deck oven with stone floor and no fan, would it be the best option for baking pies with puff pastry lids? Or would convection and/or steam give better results? I can't find a...

    Shortcrust- to roll or divide?

    Laurenlulu thanks for your reply. Foodpump you make a lot of sense! There is always a reason why the majority of people do something a certain way and you've made it clear why bakeries typically roll their dough! The pie presses I was looking at both pressed out cases and with a change of dies...

    Shortcrust- to roll or divide?

    Just wondering if anyone here has ever used a dough sheeter or a dough press? There are so many pastry cooks here from home cooks to professional to retired pastry chefs that I would have thought all chefs and most pastry enthusiasts would have had used either for many years, let alone had an...
