Smart, pretty and talented

Appropriate to the season, pie baking is all the rage. Much of the debate centers on what kind of fat to use (lard has its proponents), but in this video, Joanne Chang demonstrates frissage, a technique of smearing dough on a surface to create an extra flaky pastry in the end. I also didn't realize that she is a Harvard graduate who went through something like three different careers before settling in on her love of pastry and baking.

A well produced video, even though it really is a commercial for King Arthur Flour.

  1. Interesting. A quick check confirms what I thought - I know it as "fraisage", not "frissage" - and it's good to see it done rather than read about it.
