One of my jobs at the restaurant was to be the Pretzel Lady. No, I didn't just open a bag of Rold Gold and be done with it, thank you. Smart aleck. No, I made chewy bread pretzels and baked them every day. They were Awesome, if I do say so myself.
We based our formula on Alton Brown's pretzel recipe and fancied ours up with a sprinkle of sel gris and some Crazy Good Taleggio-Porter Fondue for dipping. We used to hope that there would be one or two left over at the end of service so we could Eat Them.
And now, without further ado, here is Episode 3a of PMAT Live: Doin' the Pretzel Twist. As you've prolly guessed, this video is mostly about twisting the pretzels, but you'll also see me scaling the dough. And you'll meet the newest member of the PMAT Live! Team--Monte, the stereo microphone. As well, I found some Pretty Keen music, and I'm trying to Hone my Editing Skills. Check it out and let me know what you think.
