Baguette's

With all the chat lately about the 'Baguette Monge'  I pretty much followed that recipe.  I used my K.A.A.P. flour and a poolish..was what I had and I did want to try it with some added Olive Oil as suggested a while back by Jane!  They where baked under a steam cover with added steam!  Just out of the oven so I will post a crumb shot a little later this evening!

Nice baguettes, Sylvia. Look's like you're baking up a storm down there in San Diego. How was the crust? Crisp & thin? and the crumb? Very open?

Hi and thank you Pamela,  It actually sprinkled a little today..not near as warm as yesterday.  This bread I will just say was ok..the Scali is wonderful.  Mike liked it a lot until he tasted the Scali..then he changed his mind!  The crust was not as crisp with the added Olive Oil...a little more chewy I think.  The crumb on this recipe is usually not as open but I add a little extra hydration.

Pam, I had so much biga, poolish, levain laying around today I even some of your great batter fried onion rings!  Mike loved them..I told him I was going to kill him if I kept making this kind of stuff so I just fried a few!  I hardly ever make fried things..but this month has been a fry month!

All will be fine just so long as only June is a fry month. I've had to restrict us as well.

Those look absolutely fantastic - great job.  I hope to try to make some soon and am hoping for something 1/2 as nice.
