why does my bread have no flavor?
i have been making french bread, i follow the recipes and use a generous amount of salt - however, no matter what i do, my bread never tastes like the french bread i get in the store or at a restaurant. in fact, it basically has no flavor whatsoever. my first attempt at sourdough yesterday was a big failure (i was expecting this) but even that bread had no flavor whatsoever.
i dont quite understand what the problem is, if i am using salt, why is there no flavor? i use grey sea salt.
if anyone has an idea of what the problem may be, i would greatly appreciate some feedback.
