Questions on Shaping bread

February 26, 2011 - 12:57pm -- HLozada

Greetings all!

I am following the instructions for the Tartine Basic Country Bread recipe and have some questions on the initial shaping.  The description is, basically, "use your bench knife and work each piece of dough to a round shape".  I think he means to shape a boule, but I can't make sense of his description and the photo sequence (usually pretty clear on other parts of the process) is not very clear here.

Baking Tartine Country Bread

February 6, 2011 - 2:50pm -- kaycey17

I'm also one of the casual home bakers that are intrigued by the Tartine Bread, and when the book came out, I was not hesitated to try out the recipe.

I got so much information from this website and some other posts that led me to a successful first baking attempt. I also did my second attempt 3 weeks later and it definitely improved. I also wrote a blog about some of the challenges I went through so hopefully it will help out whoever is going to follow the same path
