New Bread DVD

Apr 28, 2009 | From the kitchen of Rose

The Bread DVD that I made with General Mills/Gold Medal flour is now live on Youtube and will have a permanent link on the home page of this blog.

If you'd like to see the basics of bread preparation from kneading to shaping, slashing, and baking click here.

I want to learn how to make great sub sandwich breads. I'm hoping to open a sub sandwich shop. But I need to make soft eatable breads like Subway and Jersey Mike's make.

Help,

Hello everyone again, I do apologize that I don’t have the Cake DVD copied yet, hope you understand.

I’ve added an additional convenience feature to order your copy of the Bread DVD. By mail-check, or paypal is still ok, but you can also go to my website www.myyellowkitchen.com where I’ve added the Bread DVD to watch online, and also a “Buy Now” button where you can order by credit card, too. I can’t think of more ways to do this.

I am hoping to send out 200 Bread DVDs soon, and after then will copy 200 Cake DVDs, and so on 200 at a time as you need them.

Aloha, and enjoy Rose’s new book.

REPLY

Greetings EVERYONE, at the moment, the bread dvd is available in fairly unlimited supply! Pls paypal $10 to myyellowkitchen@gmail.com or send a check as stated.

Please help me send out 200 bread DVDs, so I make room to make the cake ones! It is estimated the cake DVD will be available later next year. An announcement will be made on this blog thread. Thanks.

REPLY

I am interested in both dvds. Are they still available? How can I get them?

REPLY

Melisa, only bread DVD is available. I will be making the cake one later next year. thxs.

REPLY

Hi, are the DVDs still available? I am interested in both.. What should I do to get them?

REPLY

Melisa, at this moment only the bread dvd is available. Thanks. Cake dvd will be copied at a much later date, perhaps next year.

REPLY

Hi, i am interested in both tge cake and bread dvds. Do let me know when they are available.
Thanks
Melisa

Hello Rose,

I appreciate your kindness writing me back. I feel a little bit awkward making our correspondence a bit longer on the public web site and taking up your time. But since I’ve been getting conflicting messages from your site’s e-mail and your blog, and since I don’t have any other address at which to contact you, I am reluctantly posting this message. Here is a brief summary of what has happened. The answer I received to my very first message, with my question about baguette, was irrelevant and led to my complaint which was sent June 19th. That answer was from both your site’s e-mail address and your blog, and made me think it was from you. To my complaint I received a very nasty e-mail message from someone at your site’s e-mail address, writing as if they were you. I answered that email respectfully, hoping that you would see it also. Then on June 20th I saw a nice message on your blog, and this time it really was from you, with the recognizable mild tone of speaking . Today I received another e-mail, signed with your name at the end, but again it was not the kind of message that you would write. At first I thought I should just ignore and forget, but I want you to know what is going on in reality and how that could turn readers off. Out of respect for your site and your readers, I don’t want to go into the details of the messages; but I can send you all the copies of the correspondence if you write to me at my email address. I am sure that will clarify how this all happened.

Sincerely,
Ema

REPLY

i'm so sorry ema that you had even the slightest bad experience on the blog. i'm sure it was unintentional but so strange i can't begin to imagine how it happened. anyway very glad to hear from you as your original question and posting was both charming and interesting. i realized after i posted by response that you did indeed check out the baguette on the blog but i seem to remember people posting about the special pan i had recommended in the book and how sadly it is no longer available. it had the right shape but also a lid and receptacle to contain the steam. since then there have been other steaming devices also on the blog which will be very helpful in producing the best possible baguette. steam and time are the two big secrets of the baguette (of course flour and a light touch as well), oh, and one more thought, in the final shaping try to deflate the dough as little as possible in order to have the best large hole structure.

REPLY

Dear Rose,

Thank you so much for your time writing me a detailed e-mail about the baguette.
In fact I didn't expect an immediate answer from you since I know how busy you are. I hoped to get the answer after a while; however, I received a reply from your staff the day after posting my question. Unfortunately, that message led me to write my complaint. After some emails back and forth with your staff the situation became clear, and I would like to thank you once again for your thoughtful response and your willingness to share your experience with readers. I will definitely try the baguette recipe from your book and let you know how it turns out.

Sincerely,
Ema

REPLY

hi ema--just found your original question about the baguette. to be honest, i usually wait several days to answer involved questions as many knowledgeable bloggers often jump in and help me out with the answers knowing how very many questions i have to field. but since you have written to me personally voicing your complaint that i have not answered your question i will take the time to do so now. i did appreciate your comments about the cake but it IS hard to answer about the baguette because it is, in all its simplicity, the most difficult of all breads to get right.
in my book (the bread bible) i have a recipe for the best baguette i was able to produce in a home oven and i think it is better than most commercial ones. there are many factors involved including the right flour (do try the better for bread flour--it was designed by a famous french baker) and the two preferments which produce that wonderful flavor i know you are hoping for. as for the texture, it is important to have a curved pan and also lots of steam in the oven.
also be sure to do a search on this blog as i'm quite sure there has been some discussion about this.
sadly, though i'm very happy with my baguette, and it took countless experiments to achieve it, my husband doesn't like this particular bread so i haven't made it in quite a while but i do miss it. to me it is the perfect bread when done right.

REPLY

I must have these DVDS. Thanks

Hello Rose,

I have discovered you just few days ago while looking for a sponge cake video tutorial and came across to your video session. I liked it a lot: easy to understand, very informative without scientific lecturing. I've made today your Orange Sponge cake. My husband said, "This one is better than previous one you've made." So THANK YOU for sharing your wonderful recipe. Now I am in your site searching for the French baquette recipe. I've made them a lot and was able to make from J.Child book, but it still not what I remember having in my childhood and youth: the thin crusted, some slight pressure would make the crust crack and create lines like in desert, the crumb is very milky and the smell...I can't describe with my English, maybe a bit milky..anyways do you know what the secrets are to get that taste and aroma without using neither eggs, nor butter?

Sorry for the long message, and hope you will find time to answer.

Sincerely,
Ema

Please sign me up for the DVDs. Just let us know the details when you are ready Thanks a lot!!

REPLY

Joyce, that is the only melting pot video we have. wasn't that great?

everyone, THANK YOU for your interest on the DVDs, keep them coming. In a few months I will give you more details, how to get your addresses and your minimum dollars for the cost and shipping.

The goal right now is to predict if I need to make more than 100 copies, so that way i can have them professionally stamped.

REPLY

Just watched Rose's Melting Pot India on Youtube, it was great. Are there anymore Melting Pot shows and where can I view them?

REPLY

I would like both videos. Please let me know when and how I can purchase them.

REPLY

Hector,

I would like both the cake and bread DVDs.

Thanks!
Rachel

REPLY

I'm the same way about kneading by hand; It's just so much more satisfying.

REPLY

Hector,

Perhaps you can set up a way for us to pre-order the DVDs from you to make it easier to track. That way you will have our Names, shipping address, items we want, etc.

Just a thought.

Tammy

REPLY

I'd like to purchase the DVDs when ready.

Thanks

i don't have exact pricing and dates, yet, but i assure you, it will be a package coming from Hawaii!

so glad of all your wonderful support. i am hoping for over 100 discs, so we can have the DVDs stamped rather than home made burned.

keep the tallies coming...

I would like a DVD as well. Hope you are above 100 so you don't have to do them yourself...pretty boring.

Tanya

REPLY

Count another for the DVD! I will probably also want the Cake DVDs, depending upon the cost. Marilyn

REPLY

dear everyone, PLEASE continue to let me know if you want the DVD, I am tallying the counts, good very good so far, and i am sharing these tallies with my burning helpers.

the reason is that if I only need to mail out a dozen or two DVDs, i can burn it myself at home with home-made quality (not necessarily better for DVDs... but obviously better for cakes!). However, if I need to mail out a hundred or two DVDs, i will end up burning myself... anything near 100 copies I will use a "stamping service" do the burning.

again, this DVD will be the real thing, the quality of the video is superb, you can watch single hairs strands on Rose's hairdo!

as you see on youtube, the bread dvd is near 15 minutes long. it is fitted on 1 DVD.

the cake dvd will be posted near the time the book is released, it is fitted on 2 DVDs, near 60 minutes long each! this is as close and everyone will have a chance to reach Rose without having to live on the same town...

it was suggested to package the cake DVDs in a 2-disc-mailer, and to package the bread DVD in a single disc mailer, and to give the option of cake-with-free-bread-included (since bread is rather short) or bread-only. what do you think? i am already getting confused.

how many of you would like this bread video on an actual DVD? let me know... as i need to plan ahead how many discs to mail out.

i have the master DVD disc, and the quality of the video is hair thin sharp. the cost will be approximately $5, postage included, for 1 DVD disc containing the bread videos.

you all must let me know, as there is quite a bit of reproduction logistics, duplication, distribution, etc, i must coordinate...

this DVD disc is the real deal as good as it gets. General Mills / Gold Medal flour has done a fantastic job creating the DVD disc, with easy to use menu buttons, and I am the person to make it available to you all!

REPLY

You're spoiling us with all of these great videos!

REPLY

there will be a great dvd posted in a few months of all the techniques from the upcoming book. Hector Wong has offered most generously to send out hard copies to those people who want them just for the minimal cost of production and shipping. probably the bread dvd above will also be available.

My other You Tube appearances will only be available on You Tube. thanks for asking.

REPLY

Is there any way that you can have a DVD made of all of these, os would that be problematic with the rights-holders?

REPLY

thanks for letting us know. i'm in the middle of getting ready for a trip so forgot about the make the youtube public part!

REPLY

I'm able to view both videos now. Thanks

REPLY

I get the same message for the first video but I am able to watch the second one.

I get the following error when I click on the play button. "This is a private video. If you have been sent this video, please make sure you accept the sender's friend request"
