Monaco19: Knead to know demonstration at Monaco Yacht Show

Former yacht Chef Ross Hutchinson pulled out a square plastic storage container with his treasured yeast starter for Wednesday’s Russian rye bread baking demonstration during the Monaco Yacht Show.

“Bread takes practice and practice makes perfect,” Hutchinson said  As he kneaded dough and lightly coated it with flour at the Captain and Crew Lounge.

“Fortunately, it’s inexpensive,” he said. “You practice  And practice again. And throw it away.”

Making bread may look easy, but that’s not always the case.

“Making bread takes determination,” he said. “Don’t let that bread win.”
