Hope this is the right place for this.Baguette as Hammelmans recipe with poolish preferment with 1/3 rd of salt Very pleased as family devoured in no time still lots to learn improving thanks to this site
Baguettes are probably the simplest of all breads with respect to the ingredients, FWSY. But with so many variables such as %hydration, time and temp for rising, kneading, baking temp and time, moisture, well, the list goes on and on. I poured my first attempt down the drain. I now know not to do that.
Glad your first loaf came out looking good.
looks like you got a real nice crust going on under there - i wanna see that score and what appears to be a really nice bloom. Congrats !
