 wat een mooi zuurdesembrood... that sourdough festive bread looks stunning! I'm curious about the crumb and a recipe!

The desembrod/sourdough/levain festive bread is pretty impressive as are all the products.

Is this loaf a slash; has the dough been pressed or am I seeing pieces assembled

from a bun rounder?

Very nice photos

for the video links and the link to bakkerswereld!

Just finished eating a lovely potato-bread topped with chorizo. Real rustic exterior and moist, yet open crumb. Doesn't really need any topping:-) I am looking forward to tomorrow morning's breakfast with the bread toasted with homemade organic blackberry marmelade.

Nice to meet another Dutch person here... I know from reading the blogs of several Bread Baking Babes that there are more of us reading TFL, but not many posting.
