Question: has anyone tried using a dutch oven for the final proof rather than a lined and floured banneton - and then baking in the dutch oven after proofing?
dutch oven baking
I first came across Jim Lahey's book on amazon when I was searching for a Dutch oven. I had just bought Tartine Bread (Chad Robertson) and was planning to try the recipe. Am still waiting to beginthe starter (I travel a lot and am trying to figure out how to keep it going) and for my pan to be ordered (I live in India!). But, I am going to order my Dutch oven and I wanted some feedback on whether I should also consider buying Jim Lahey's (or any other) book that has recipes for the Dutch oven.
This is my third batch of Tartine country bread with very good results each time-this is one my favorite breads. I Followed his instructions for preparing the leaven and dough, I retarded the dough in the refrigerator overnight in the baskets.
