BBA poolish baguettes

As I'm working my way through the BBA Challenge, I finally took a crack at poolish baguettes. I have to say the results were fantastic. I really liked the addition of sifted whole wheat flour. Just wanted to show a couple of pictures.




Hope I'm in the right spot for this post.

Thanks for the kind words. They tasted so good. I don't even know if I have a picture of the bread sliced, as it was disappearing so quickly. Yes, I did use parchment paper for my proofing. Just floured and folded like a couch (didn't feel like shaking it out so late in the cold evening). When things were ready I just ran a pair of scissors down the top/fold over loop part and then each piece of dough was on it's on movable piece. Worked wonders!
