Love these real artisan baking videos.  If the bread was 4# and tastes as good as Poilane's then he cold sell it for 9.6 Euros in Paris and $50 in Phoenix:-)

Dab, that was very relaxing to watch. The video had an old world calming affect. A bare footed baker working in a natural environment.

You could tell, this was not his first rodeo.

If I understand correctly, he dissolved sea salt in the water, adding to the flour first, and then add the levain. No autolysis, right?

he used. He filtered the water to make sure no impurities from the sea salt made it into the bread. The sea salt is hand made in the Guerande region.

to watch. It's my dream to live like that and not wear shoes. Thanks for posting this. Did you know that you can go to his farm in Brittany and take a course? If I manage to join one, I'll let you know how it goes. Thanks again!
