I recently tried a diamond pattern for my miche, and got a very interesting result:
I love the ear, although it is quite a bit larger than I've seen, and none of the other slashes really opened up properly. Has anyone seen this happen before? My gues is that I slashed a bit deeper on that side, although I don't recall doing so. I'd like to be able to recreate similar effects, but obviously a bit more controlled.
This dough was 68% hydration, fermented for about 14 hours, and proofed for 3.
