Brooklyn Bread Porn by Liza de Guia

Liza de Guia (aka @SkeeterNYC on Twitter) is a very talented videographer from Brooklyn, NY, and this film about Matthew Tilden, founder of SCRATCHbread, is nothing short of inspiring.

Not only is the subject inspiring, but her video production and editing skills are at a level I can only hope to someday achieve.

With apologies to the gluten-free folks, if this video doesn't make you want to bake and/or eat bread, you may have issues. Enjoy!

Wow. I wish he was here in SF so I could try this. Beyond just trying the bread, it's too bad more people can't share that kind of passion for what they do. To me, this video goes beyond food. It's about passion, going against the grain, and believing in what you do.

This is far and away the best post you have ever shown us.

Best,

Scott

This is a very neat post. I love the rustic brick oven technique of baking bread, and this video truly shows how much soul they put into making their bread.

Making bread with hands is highly therapeutic. I love it! If I ever buy a bread maker, it will just be for those emergency times when I gotta have bread tomorrow morning but cannot stand and have to sleep now!

I learned making sourdough before store bought yeast bread because of the hard times we experienced last year in our country when even yeast was not available. Bread was also scarce and expensive. Ever since I am hooked! I think for me it was a blessing in disguise. I do not make sourdough that much anymore but even with store bought yeast, the experience is just soooo like nothing else.

I think this guy is one of the most blessed people on earth.

I'd sure love to be there when that bread comes on out of the oven, mmmmmmm. Great video.

I love how he flips his dough around like a dance partner. When I try to knead by hand I end up looking like The Mummy. Wonderful clip.

Thanks for sharing this! I was going to go home and paint after work but now I'm wanting to make bread :)
Awesome!

I highly admire people who are that passionate about something. Is it weird that I got teary eyed from watching that?

great video...as a fellow chef I feel his passion.I believe everything we create should be from scratch as well...!! God Bless and Good Luck!!:)

At first, I wanted to laugh at the cheesiness when he called the dough he was kneading was "sexy", but seeing how it handled changed my mind. That is some sexy dough.

I suppose at least one gluten-free person should comment on this video. I am a bit weepy and wistful watching this. Before I had to give up gluten (only a year ago) I loved making bread and all the things he says were my experience as well. People would say you can get your aggressions out kneading. WHAT!!! That is food that will be nourishing your body. Knead love into it. I have not found a similar experience with gluten-free bread yet. Instead I've learned to make corn tortillas and various quickbreads that take to GF flours better. Well, the blog title says it is porn. And with porn you don't get a girl that looks like that so I suppose it is fitting.

Touching video...thank you, but I need to make this comment.

Nobody that is "from" Brooklyn NY, actually appears to be "from" Brooklyn NY anymore - it's sad to me. The young "urban" migrants drove the prices up like crazy - gentrification is one of the reason so many areas just happen to be so "different"
