For this month I promise myself I will be doing all three breads from the Mellow Bakers' Challenge. I actually did good and made this at the beginning of the month. We will see how the rest of the month goes :D. This recipe was similar to the first french bread I made. The biggest difference was that the recipe was a two day process. You first create a poolish 12 hours prior but the total rise time was decreased (a plus in my book). The rest of the technique was very similar. Comparing this recipe to the first one, I actually prefer the first one. For some reason, this wasn't as "squeshy" as the other version. Personally, I would use both depending on how much time I have.
