Field Blend #2 by Ken Forkish

A favorite bread of one of my favorite bread books: Flour Water Salt Yeast by Ken Forkish.

The method is a little bit long to explain, so I've written it here:

Abel, BCN.

I baked my first loaf (Wheat Walnut Bread) from Ken Forkish's book last week, and was very pleased with the result.

This one is the next on my list.

Happy Baking,

It looks like you achieved a near-perfect crumb on that loaf.  I just got Forskish's book and have only had time to make his pizza dough with poolish. I adjusted it to 70% hydration. This may be my new favorite pizza dough recipe (at least until I try the levain recipe). I'm looking forward to making a number of the breads from this book. You've inspired me!

Mmmm, mmm, very nice! I had something fairly similar in mind for tomorrow's bake. Hopefully it will turn out as lovely as your loaf has. Thanks for sharing!
