This would be my go at "baguette" ->

It is from Hamelman's "Bread" and it's the baguette with poolish recipe.  Great chewiness in the crust, not bad crumb, I think I was expecting better taste - too "white bread-ish".  But I've been doing a lot of whole grains and soakers lately so maybe my taste is off.  I dunno, all these recipes seem like there's not enough salt in them.

Anyway, I found hamelman's great youtube on bread shaping - after I made these.  Next time.  Also, intentionally made short, I have a small, apartment sized oven that only fits a 15" pan
