The Baguette

by katerina on February 24, 2008

Never have I been so impressed by progress made. I have made bread multiple times before and formed baguette type loaves with French dough before too. However some of the techniques used by Julia Child made this truly superior to other breads I have made.

Yes, thats right the Daring Bakers strike again! I was really excited by this month’s challenge and even more excited with the result. I think the key thing that I learned from the recipe was her method of shaping the dough. It took me almost as long to shape the dough for a baguette as it did to roll out a pie crust last month – but I think the end result was much better for it and could improve over time. I highly, highly recommend this recipe. I will definitely be making it again.

Our challengers this month were Sara from I Like to Cook and BreadChick Mary from the Sourdough. You can check out the full recipe here.
