This gorgeous bread was made using the book My bread by Jim Lahey with Rick Flaste. Lahey is the founder of the Sullivan Street Bakery in New York.
Of all of the methods for cooking bread, I have to say that Lahey has turned me into a dutch oven believer. The crust is bubbly and chewy, and the crumb is custardy and moist which is a nice contrast to the crust. I love bread.
Thanks for starting me on this path Ethan. I love it and hate how much I do.
