Baguettes


Baguettes

These are from a recipe in my other main bread book, of which I don't remember the title. I also am not sure where it is at the moment. Alas.

They turned out well, the one I had anyway. Gave one away. As with my other ones, still not as open of a crumb as I would like.

I've thought about buying "The Bread Bible," do you recommend it? I'm addicted to cookbooks and I really want to get some more that are dedicated to bread.

I put a link to your site from my wordpress blog (i don't know if i'll ever get my blogger one up and running again) http://elskermeg.wordpress.com, hope that's ok!

Sure, that's fine :) I added a link to yours on here too.

I haven't done that many recipes out of it yet. There are so many! The ones I have done so far have turned out well. It also seems to have some good stuff on techniques, and equipment and what not. The recipes do tend to be a bit more complex, with more stages and what not though.

The other one I've been using is Bread
which has a lot of recipes, and all I've done so far have turned out well.

The first bread I made, other than pitas (though I used this book for them too), was out of this book. Pain de Campagne Rustique. It was technically a sourdough, but you use the culture after only 3 days or so. It turned out a bit flat, but good. I guess you could say I was ambitious.

But anyway, I like both of those. If you have any you really like give me the names and I'll check them out too.
