Here's a Whole Wheat Epi and Batard I baked today after a 3 day fermentation in my fridge. I used Peter Reinhart's 100% WW Hearth Bread formula from Artisan Breads Everyday -
With two invitations to house parties this Holiday season, I decide to bring a decorative and edible contribution to the events. I made Pain d'Epi loaves in two sizes. The first were meant to be used as dinner rolls on New Year's Day when torn from the stalk, and were made using 34 oz. of flour to make 4 stalks. The second were meant for an appetizer party, and 4 loaves were made from just 17 oz. of flour. Both were a big hit, and no bread was left in either basket.
I got my copy of the BBA about two weeks ago, and it's been really great, I read through it in just two days and have started trying out various recipes and techniques, Here are some pics of the results, I have been very very happy with them all so far, and below are actually shots of my first attempts at each recipe :)

Baking session on 2/13/08. Kalamata olive bread and a pain d'epi.
ABin5 epi. Dough was 12 days old. Blurry. What a bummer.
Can anyone tell me how to form an Epi French Bread?
