Baking Tartine Country Bread

October 29, 2012 - 6:32am -- rozzibread

Just started making the Country Bread "Tartine" recipe... the bread is great, but after the final proof, the loaves are too big for my cooking vessels.


1) I need bigger vessels. One is a Le Creuset 9" round pot, the other a ceramic 9.5" deep pot.


2) I might need smaller brotforms. The brots I use are also 9" in diameter. Is there something formulaic about using a smaller proofing basket than your baking vessel?
