Dutch Oven Size??
Just curious but I know Ken Forkish has adapted all of his recipes for using a 4 quart. So I bought a Lodge 4 quart Dutch Oven and have been using it ever since.
Now I'm considering buying one of Jim Lahey's books but he clearly likes the 5 quart Dutch Oven.
So should I take the plunge and buy a 5 quart Lodge? It's pretty reasonable on amazon.
Oh, and one more thing. Would the 5 quart be better for baking most loaves or even converting? I know a lot of Ken's recipes are specifically for two loaves. Since i haven't read Jim's book I'm guessing that most of his recipes are for one loaf, and this is why the 5 quart is recommended. Is this correct? And do many of you find you cook more with the 5 quart than the 4 quart?
