Some days you're the hydrant.
This one was a dog day. Baguettes with poolish from Hamelman, but a little bit wetter. This baguette stuff is tricky.
baguettes, the crumb came out great too! Just wish straight dough baguettes didn't stale so fast....
They look bang on. Can we see the crumb?
Those look great Bob. My dogs would be very happy to help you finish them off :).
I made them about a week ago. They don't last long, but I found this one in the freezer and thawed it a bit. These are about 70% hydration; I dialed it back from txfarmer's 75% number to work on shaping. The next batch will be a little wetter.
Nice crumb, thanks for sharing.
Look at the ears on those! looks really great.
those look terrible...huh..NOT...I don't know what your complaint is. They look fantastic ! After I finish pizza I am moving on to baguette. I have been baking all of our breads since the mid 70's...I still have a lot to learn :) Don't you love TFL ? c
You really are a dog. (Usually I don't mean that as a compliment, but ....) -Varda
TFL is such a great resource.
I'm still a bit inconsistent with baguettes. I know my problem is paying attention to detail. I just have to do that. :)
