Novice - First try
Lovely site, I can now learn from the great bread gurus that provide brilliant advice and guidance here.
I finally managed to get round to baking the famous no knead bread (Jim Lahey version). The outcome being, yes easy for a novice like me but need to figure out why, the loaf was denser and not as light as I would expect plus it was 'grey' (just like the weather here in the UK) not white in it's appearance, and finally the crust was thicker then I had expected. In terms of taste, it was very good. The deviations from the original method being, that the final 2 hour proof ended being 3 hours as I was held up with other matters and I used a ceramic casserole pot.
Here I go again and have another try today, wish me luck.
