a shortage of postings to your beautiful pics and formulas ??? I am sorry for that. Your breads are lovely and your crust and crumb and scoring are exceptional Good luck ! I would love your ciabatta formula as I struggle with getting a good one, there is a quick one on here but the flavor leaves a lot to be desired and also the yeast is TOO much. Thank you ,c
