Hi there:
Beautiful bread! I'm so glad that you like "Local Breads". It is one of my very favorite books, and the pain de campagne is one of my regular loaves now. I finally figured out how to attach pictures! So here is one of my Pain de Campagne loaves, as well as the Altamura Bread (formula also from Leader).

I saw the pain de campagne photo before I saw this thread. Really lovely looking bread, both loaves. Scoring = A+++.

I don't have Local Breads, I have Bread Alone. Now I want the later book as well!

beautiful loaves, crumb & crust. I've been a bit put off by amount of errors I've heard the book has, but I am always impressed with the results I've seen. These loaves tempt me to purchase the book.

I've been wondering which recipe to make first, and I think I know now.  Thanks!
