first time biga

I posted this pic under comments somewhere but I am posting it again because I am so happy with the results!

This was my first time using a pre-ferment.  All my past bread baking as been more about speed and convenience.  Basically, I love a fresh loaf but couldn't commit to the time!  

So glad I did this last night because I will now be making it a (delicious) habit :)

in taste is so amazing when you work with pre-doughs and/or overnight cold fermentation.

Very nice looking loaf - what is it?

Happy baking (and greetings from my cat Fritz who's just trying to climb on my keyboard)
