I took a class in bread baking. Then I baked breads at home and took them back to the teacher for her comments. She said that, just as in your loaf, there is NO flattening of the crumb or lack of rise at the very bottom of the loaf where it rested on the baking surface. That detail is what makes a bread of especially fine quality. Texture and flavor and crust and other things are important, but, those I can't judge from a photo. Appearance of crumb I can comment upon. Yours is excellent.
Thank you Stuart. My kids go through my bread like anything else which I enjoy seeing, and also eating.
Looks really delicious.
form loaf of some kind with some durum in it that really pulled itself off the baking surface so nicely. Well done and happy baking
