What are you most proud of? They look good, smell good, and taste good... now I have to try to get the crumb right (the instructor says the holes need to be large and irregular, but mine aren't there yet).

Looks good!

Thanks! It really did taste good. I'm not sure how to get those big giant bubbles in the bread though... But, I'll keep working on it. I think the instructor suggested not moving the dough too much, avoiding removing the air pockets.

Wow. I like the cuts in your baguettes. Amazing job.

Thanks! I haven't received my French 'lame" yet for Christmas, so I just used a razor blade. That seemed to do the job. But, I am a sucker for kitchen tools.

Great job of scoring with resulting nice bloom. I'm still working on that part!

I loved the YouTube links you posted about scoring... when my "lame" arrives I will give it another go. The shaping videos from the same site are really interesting too. I need to work on my crumb. I don't get those giant open holes like they show in the videos... yet!
