Learn how to make three types of strudel dough and a variety of delectable fillings with guidance from award-winning pastry chef and cookbook author Nick Malgieri. To begin, learn both hand-thrown and stand-mixer methods for developing gluten in your first strudel dough. Then, Nick walks you through each step of stretching your dough to transparent thinness and patching overstretched areas with ease. Pack your dough with sweet apple filling and master a tablecloth rolling technique to achieve the perfect shape every time. Up Next, Nick shows you how to make a wonderful grape strudel that won't burst. And, you'll master a sweet dough strudel loaded with poppyseed filling and formed into a classic braid style, sure to set your pastries apart.
