My first boule!

This is the Ken Forkish recipe for Saturday bread.  I was very intimidated by a boule, but I went for it.  They are so gorgeous.  I halved the recipe since I do not yet have the 12 qt Cambro.  The recipe came out fine And the family loved it!

Hi Casey

i can see nothing wrong with that loaf at all, you will of course soon be stopping the family from devouring the loaf before you take a crumb shot of the inside for us all to see too. Very well done for your first attempt at a boule and nicely baked out too lots of colour to the crust.Not suprised the family loved it, i do too

kind regards Yozza/Derek

Thank you for the encouraging words.  I find bread baking enthralling.  I took a picture of my crumb.  However, I do not know how to upload the second picture well.  I will work on that upload tomorrow!  I hope this week to try a bigs or poolish.  Thank you for the support!

Warm regards,

 

Casey

Nothing hard about that and the end result is very good ans I bet is even more tasty than it looks. Well done!

This was so gratifying!  I thought it was even better than the baguettes!  we lives in Tucson for awhile.  The heat would make baking a challenge.
