Hamelman's Poolish Baguettes - My first Try
After last week's failure at a first attempt at baguettes, I took advice from some of you and started out with an easier recipe. This time I followed it to the word. Hamelman's Poolish Baguette recipe promises a nutty tone, soft crumb with a thin crispy crust. I believe I achieved all of these qualities and am quite happy with the results. It may not be my absolute favourite style of baguette, but it will surely provide me the needed practice into a new journey in bread baking. Many baguettes, here I come.
Also, for those of you who haven't tried it, you must get some thinly sliced prosciutto de parma and lay a few slices on fresh out of the oven piece of baguette. And I thought french baguette and brie was the ultimate. Wow.
