So while waiting for my sourdough starter, I wanted to start with a more basic recipe off Reinhart’s Artisan Breads Every Day. I decided to make the Classic French Bread, and shape it into baguettes. I just followed his recipe to the dot. I even bought myself a kitchen scale, felt all grown up! And of course, set up unglazed terra cotta tiles in my oven. I couldn’t find a baking stone in my city. Hearth style baking is fairly new to me. But I think I managed OK.

Baguettes shaped.

And baked!

I just think his recipe works like magic! Easily the best bread I’ve ever made.
