from a bread newbie : long autolyse + cold and long fermentation makes a killer bread !!!

June 3, 2010 - 8:52am -- sebasto06

Hi to all of you guys and girls, and thanks a million for this precious website.

I'm french, and pretty new to making bread even though i've always dreamed to. I just love bread and, unfortunately, the bread you can find nowadays in french bakeries is pretty much unedible nine times out of ten. Tasteless, chewless and essentially stale only a couple hours after you bought it, not even mentioning the price which, sincerely, gets just about scandalous these days...
