Daring Baker #3 - Julia's French Bread

>> Friday, February 29, 2008

Yeah. French bread. Julia style.

Real purty, ain't it? Now go over to the breadchickif you wanna check out the recipe. It's okay, I can wait.

Okay, now go over the Daring Bakers blogroll and look at all the purty and not so purty loaves. Laugh at the funny ones, cry with the sad ones, make fun of the dumb ones. Whatever you do - do NOT mention that your local Vietnamese bakery sells not one but two perfect baguettes for a buck and change. A Daring Baker that has just spent 14 hours waiting for a loaf of bread to bake only to have to wait 2 more hours to taste it can not be held accountable for what might result. A Daring Baker would of course probably say that it's not about the end result. That it's about the process. That it's about going outside of one's comfort zone and doing what seems undoable. I wouldn't know. I am NOT a Daring Baker. I am a Daring Faker. I didn't make the bread. Didn't even try. I just ran out of month. But oh I do admire those that did. Congratulations to all of you!

jenny your bread turned out beautifully! I do hope I get the chance to try this - I'm hoping for Sunday. I really can't believe I let February get away from me like that!

Not devoting a day to bread making must mean that you have a life to tend to, unlike the rest of us who did :-D

Hello Lisa! You are too funny! Love the Daring Faker Baker.
It was a long one to have to pay attention to, if you were busy! I put mine in the fridge and came back to it when I could. Work and the need for sleep came first.
Nice to have you leave a comment on my blog. I have enjoyed looking through your posts. Lovely!

Aaahhh this made me laugh!
Well, fabulous job at picking a great picture of bread and writing an entertaining post!
I think you rock, even as a Daring Faker. =)

Too much fun! Well, I bet those rolls will go well in bentos regardless. Great blog, love it!

Very funny! Thanks for leaving a comment on my site. Your blog is fantastic. Hope you get to try the recipe at some point in the future. Believe me, the end results are worth it!

That's highlarious. Daring Faker or not, I'm sure that you'll get to it. Before I joined the DB I made a bunch of the recipes after everyone had posted about them, and they were just as tasty. You'll love it when you get to it. Thanks for the comment on my little blog. Your bentos are beautiful. I'm going to have to direct my two bento-loving friends over here, if they don't already have you on their radar.

Erin March 2, 2008 at 3:10 PM
