Floyd you have the most beautiful crusts!  The olive bread is lovely as well.


I just reserved this book at the library, though it looks like one I might end up owning!  Just what I need, another bread book!  :)

It is really good. It took me a while to get into because it is much less user-friendly than BBA or Dan Lepard's book, but there is a lot of really good stuff in it once you get over that hump.

He didn't say to do this, but I sprayed the top of the loaves with water and then sprinkled more cheese on top. I also lowered the temperature in the oven to around 375 for the last 20 minutes so the cheese wouldn't burn. It turned out great.
