    My first attempt at bread baking

    I had been wanting to learn bread baking for a while but never got around to it due to the amount of time needed, had the day off today and decided to try making bread. I based my bread on Hamelman's six-fold baguette, I steamed the oven with a hot pan of water and super-soaker for first ten minutes, then baked another 8 or so without steam, temp at 460ºF. Each baguette was about 300g before baking. The crumb isn't exactly how I would like, but I am very happy with it as a first attempt at bread.

    Agreed.

    I may have to try this before the summer heat hits...

    I halved the recipe, went with a bit more water. I think that I will try this again with some slight variations. The first loaf was eaten in about two minutes, with a goose liver paté.

    I'm doing a multigrain artisan bread this evening, with honey for a different flavor. Going to have to try your recipe, I miss fresh ones!

    Have you ever checked out one of Peter Reinhardt's books? One of my coworkers swears by it.
