Hello, For this month The Daring Baker's made Julia Child's French Bread. This was a time consuming recipe. I have to say as French breads go it was Ok. I prefer the recipe I go with my bread machine.
And now the pictures.
Before first rise.
Here they are just before the final rise, this took 3 hours.
It was fun getting both on one cookie sheet and into the oven.
It came out with a nice crust, the shape did not hold however. It tasted good though.
The crumb was not bad.
It went over well at the Potluck that I went to. Out of the 2 loaves this was what was left.
