First Time Making Bread - Tartine Loaf Picture

Had to share my success! Sorry for the crummy (no pun intended) pic but I had to grab something before the family landed like hawks on it.

Found Chad's recipe accessible and with a great wealth of info for a first time bread baker. Made two loaves Saturday and then tried a variation with a higher hydration dough (90%) on Sunday. Both batches were insanely good...

Welcome.  You are well on your way to doing away with "store bought" bread!  Floyd Mann is our host.

Once you start looking for another variation, I can't recommend enough, his walnut loaf.  It is out of this world. You loaf looks fantastic.

Congratulations!  Very nicely done!

I can relate to the family descending like hawks.  You will discover that when bread is about to come out of the oven, friends and family look like seagulls circling a fishing boat.  Sourdough is known for staling very slowly, but I can't personally attest to that.  The bread never lasts long enough!

Great bake.  Keep up the good work!
