Well the results are in from my first attempt the NYT Bread recipe. First, let me say that I've been around so it takes a lot to impress me. I'm impressed!!! I studied JoeV's tutorial (most excellent) on the use of parchment paper VS. cotton towels (yuk!). I am so impressed I took the liberty of christening it "La Methode de JoeV Pour La Pain Sans Effort". (How's my French?) I took some very good photos, and despite the valient efforts of DW as well as myself I could not get the d---ed thing to work. Trust me, the crust is soooooooooo artisanal, and the crumb is to die for! Holes, glorious Holes!
