The Bread Baker’s Apprentice Challenge: No 14. French Bread
Bread time again! Here is another installment of my attempt to bake my way through Peter Reinhart’s wonderful book, The Bread Baker's Apprentice: Mastering the Art of Extraordinary Bread.
The fourteenth recipe in the Bread Baker's Apprentice Challenge is French Bread.
A beautiful French Baguette is my go to bread whenever I entertain. There is something elegant about its long narrow shape and its lovely golden crust. It makes me feel very Parisian. Oh la la. :)
The dough was a little hard to knead but it came together nicely in the end. I'm still not happy with the shape of the final baguette but it sure tasted amazing. The baguette shape perfection will come with time and practise. I plan to practise making this one again and again and again. Enjoy!
Show some love to the other challenge participants in this challenge.
