Tartine bakery baking temperatures

July 3, 2012 - 10:35pm -- Axel

Hello TFL,

Does anyone know what the baking temperatures in Tartine bakery for their country bread.

Not adaptation for home ovens, but deck oven. In one of the pictures I saw 490 degrees.

Could it be that they bake at high temps ?

I have kinda big deck oven and I experimenting with temps now. I will try 490 for 10 first minutes then low to 410 untill done.

Bread doesn't rise as well in the winter. Is it the lack of humidity?

I've noticed that during the winter weather, my whole grain bread doesn't rise as well as it does in the warmer months. Could it have something to do with the relative humidity (or lack thereof) in my house and kitchen? It gets VERY dry in the winter here. 

If so, what's the solution? Should I put a pan of water in the oven? Change my baking temperature? Change the ratio of any of my ingredients? Something else?

I welcome any and all input. Thanks!
