Make your own butter with cream...and Torontonians need some Quebecer's to teach them some Frenchy stuff!
Hey Norbert, well, these had potential...more push and well, I am having issues since my best ever croissants...still, trying durum I felt was interesting for color, extensibility and just the hell of it! Goat butter is still a bit strange..more like lard texture and funky goat cheese...combined with Southern Italian sunny flour,goat butter and ballsy French flair...what else could you screw up?

As per il Maestro di skura, Antonino Esposito....he let me know...even if I am a stubborn eretico! Antonino Esposito Nel grano Arso c'è una percentuale di farina di forza 300 W riesce a lievitare anche con lievito madre e solo che nel cornetto ci sono molti grassi e quindi fa fatica ma io proverei a fare un bel rinfresco alla madre e poi impastare oppure con appena 2 gr di lievito ti crei prima un impasto di 100 gr poi impasti insieme al lievito madre rinfrescato
