Saturday Bread on a Sunday

Decided to start with one of Ken Forkish's easier recipes and made the Saturday Bread.  It turned out pretty good and I would say it is probably the nicest looking bread that I have made on my short journey to bread geekdom.  Finally got the nice rings from my wicker basket (you should have seen some of my past disasters).  I used a czech flour to flour the basket - it was a coarse wheat and I think that made it less sticky than the previous AP I was using (didnt have to add rice flour).

loaf of bread on any Day!  Beautifully baked to that  dark brown tasty stage of crust.

Well done!

Your bread is every bit as gorgeous as the breads featured in Mr. Forkish's book :^)
What a pretty-looking loaf with the flour pattern, and the bloom during baking; the crust and crumb look wonderful.

Thank you for the compliments.  I only started baking a couple of months ago, so it's awesome to hear praises from amazing bakers like yourselves.  I still have a ton to learn, but thats what keeps this hobby fun.  Well...that and the delicious bread we all get to eat. :)
