Bread, bread and more bread!
Just pulled two loaves of pain de campagne (recipe from Peter Reinhart's Bread Baker's Apprentice). I used more whole wheat flour and less white flour than was called for in the recipe, so perhaps my loaves won't have all the great big holes of artisan bread. I have to wait a while before cutting one open to see the crumb. They smell great. Look good too, even if I was a little slow getting the water into the baking pan underneath the loaves to generate some steam in the baking process. I've got to work on making that a smoother set of moves. Once I get my camera recharged I can post some pics.
