Walnuts and raisins is a nice combo too. Have you ever tried the Swiss Farmhouse bread recipe by Hamelman using yeast water? 

Very nice bake! Enjoy.

Abe’s suggestion of trying the Swiss Farmhouse recipe by Hamelman is a good one, in fact, we did a Community Bake of that recipe.  There are two parts, the First Part for making the yeast water.  The Second Part with the recipe.  Give it a try, making the yeast water and seeing it start to foam and bubble as it ferments is really neat.  Yeast water was really popular here a few years ago.  During the pandemic when yeast was in low supply around the world I was surprised that it didn’t become more popular.

Yes you bread looks lovely, nice bake.
