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!
