I have been baking with the artisan bread in five method for several years. I have baked on the egg, and I love it. With that said, my wife made me quit because we were getting fat. Now it's just pizza dough and special occasions.
Your loaves look awesome, make me want to mix up a batch right now. Nice work!
I am a big fan of Little Feat. Last night scored a box set of their first 5 albums for $9.99. Two I already had, but really enjoying the original Dixie Chicken and Sailin' Shoes. Some of these cuts I have not heard since college.
