I love Baguettes!

Lately it seams like I cant keep these in the house. I no sooner get them out of the oven and there gone.

I baked 4, here are 2 with some pieces on the side

(Obligatory crumb shot)

less then 1 hour after baking, 1 left.

Served with Pesto, Olive Tapenade, and Roasted Red Pepper and Artichoke spread.

Nice looking crumb on those.

Me too!  I could make and eat baguettes every day.  And, I have found that I make 4 out of a recipe because that length fits my stone nicely.  Most often I make only 2 and leave the rest of the dough in the fridge.  They look and taste even better after a 48 hour retard.  Yours look mouth-watering and I am going to steal the idea of the spreads for my next party.
