I DID IT

I made my first sourdough bread and it turned out great! It was a Pain De Campagne. 500 grams of flour and I got it baked to 4.25" high and 8.25" wide. It was perfect. Crunchy chewy crust with very delicate crumb. I ate half a loaf and made myself sick.

Wow!  congratulations.  It looks perfect, inside and out.  My first loaf looked nothing like that.  Looks like you have the touch!  Best,  Phyllis

But bread shouldn't make you sick!  I bet it was something else. ;)

David Esq. read the post again. "I ate half a loaf and made myself sick." No mention of the bread making anyone sick. ;)
