I much prefer Richard's way of working the dough. Somehow I never got along with kneading but I love this way, that is new to me. I happened to mention the book on my blog and Jo Bertinet commented and gave me great advice to use a floured linen tea towel to prove the dough on, so that it doesn't stick and thus make it difficult to transfer to your baking stone or tray.
I also bought one of the special scrapers but find a good silicone spatula works quite well - but the scraper is better for cutting amounts off the dough. ( )

Beautiful book with many innovative ideas. I love Bertinet's kneading method. ( )

This is a very pretty book. The recipes are interesting and those that I've tried are pretty tasty. I like that measurements are given in weights as well as volumes in order to be more precise.
