NY Times bread with herbes de provence

It tasted wonderful with herbes de provence ! I added about a tablespoon of it to the water and yeast before adding the flour. I also used bread flour instead of all purpose. Next time I am going to try Hawaiian sea salt instead of regular salt .

The "add-ins" are only as limited as our imaginations. I'm thinking red pepper flakes and cilantro with a little jack cheese might be good to go with chili.

Try a little EVOO instead of butter. Great flavor either freshly cut or drizzled on after toasting. I think it's better for you than butter, but I could be wrong. The Italians have been using olive oil longer than butter, and they're still here to tell about it.

Truly a beautiful loaf of bread. Let's tear off a hunk and chase it with a carafe of merlot and a nice wedge of cheese. Life don't get much better than this.
