The sourdough starter wasn't floating because by the time did the float test it has already collapsed and degased so 12 hours was too long for it. Would have passed the test for sure if they did it earlier. Still the starter was completely ready and produced beautiful bread.

Claire is so so patient with Brad, given Brad does everything Claire tells him NOT to do.

Whenever I hear hear somebody say something overly specific like 257g, I get very suspicious that they don't know what they're talking about. You're honestly saying it makes a difference if I only use 250g?

Why is no one talking about brads slap and fold technique? He just slams the dough on the table it's beautiful.

Uhm, I’ve never heard of “slapping” down a sourdough 😳. You’re suppose to be gentle when kneading sourdough bread in order to maintain the bubbles... This just proves that I do not need to be gentle with my sourdough... Claire should have scored her bread a little deeper to allow bread to rise even higher while it is baking.

When you use your starter to make bread... Do you need to feed the starter bowl the same amount you took?

I truly think sometimes that Brad isn’t a chef and that Bon Appétit just found this man on the streets on New York and just slapped an apron on him and threw him into the kitchen. With that being said, he’s a wonderful addition.

@yellowonesdontstop Ooh Ok. That makes sense. Because Brad's videos have such a distinct editing style it didn't really occur to me that they were different people!
yellowonesdontstop 2 months ago
Nope- Vinny is Vincent Cross, formerly the cameraman who now works with Binging with Babish; Hunzi is Matt Hunziker who has always done the editing, but now also does the filming.
