Valentine's Poilane


For my valentine this year I thought I'd send something a little different. The folks at Poilane did an awesome job.  

 From Bievres, nothing says happy valentines quite like a poilane...  From Bievres, nothing says happy valentines quite like a poilane...

That is amazing.

That's lovely. I was surprised, though, by how gray the crust and crumb look. Is that the true color of the loaf or an artifact of the camera?

It's an artifact of the camera (ie flash) The true colour is in fact darker and not so gray.

That must have been hard to cut into.  I can't quite make out what it says though.
