I hear that everyone turns the mixer on high speed with a bowl full of flour at least once.
My tablemates got that out of the way early.
Today was the hardest day yet, not because of the pastries we were making, but in terms of how much they crammed into the day. I felt like I couldn't catch up to everyone else today. I'm exhausted, starting to get grumpy, and now my work ends up sloppy. My doughs come out nicely, but the finishing touches are losing their finesse.
