Process & Technique

Ingredients matter, but nearly as important as the ingredients you put into a loaf of bread are the techniques you use.  Appropriate mixing, folding, and shaping results in a beautiful loaf with an uneven crumb and a crispy crust.  Poor mixing and shaping can lead to a loaf that more closely resembles a brick than something you want to eat.
