I love dramatic breads!
Loved making the couronne bordelaise. Thank you Susan (susanfnp) for the very nice "norwich sourdough". I'm still finding out the tweaks for European flour (I need to firm up the dough a little more), but it's a very nice dough to work with already! Also I need to give my starter a little more time, I was impatient :-)
