This week I made pugliese from the Bread Baker's Apprentice. It is another Italian style loaf. I really like how these turned out. Kathleen even said they look like bread from a Charles Wysocki puzzle. I take that as high praise.
The crumb wasn't as perfect as bakery bread, but it's pretty good. I dream of one day having an oven with a steam feature to help with the crust.
Next week I enter the world of sourdough, which should be interesting. If the bread is half as good as the pugliese I'll be happy.
