Lovely French Shaping and use of Couche

 

I stumbled across this video and just wanted to share it here. I am playing with this method for shaping/couching batards at the moment at the bakery. Video by MC from Farine

This is the shaping method I picked up somewhere many years ago in my dry-yeast days.  Tried and true.  Love it, love seeing a pro do it.
