Bread Baker's Apprentice Challenge is pain de campagne. I am officially halfway through the challenge!! Woot Woot!! I am learned an incredible amount and had so much fun!
Pain de Campagne a very versatile bread for shaping. I could have been a lot more adventurous in shaping. The epi shape in particular looked intriguing, but this bread was destined for sopping up lots of oil and vingar so I chose the basic batard shape. I could have done a baguette, but I prefer more bread to crust.
No more cornmeal mess here! I finally just used parchment and slide the parchment on the baking stone. It was simple with no mess!
