Playing with Pan de Campagne

Here's today's work. I tried some new shapes, a couronne and a 3-strand braid. The recipe is a slightly modified version of Reinhart's Pan de Campagne. Instead of using a pate' fermentee, I used some of my rye sourdough starter, which I mixed with bread flour to make the same volume of pre-ferment.

They sure look nice! Can't wait to taste :)
