ISO Baguette Recipe

Is it hard to make? Can I freeze the dough?

Jeekins,
I assume you mean a french baguette? If so all you do is make a recipe of french bread and shape the loaves to a smaller around longer size. And, yes
bread dough can be frozen. Either shaped or left in a ball. Wrap well and freeze..I don't leave the dough frozen much longer than 2 - 3 weeks.

The dough is different from the "French bread" and "Baguette" at my supermarket.

What do you mean the dough is different? Are you speaking about already made dough in the freezer case? Or are you planning to make your own dough? The dough I make can be used for just about anything.

See the different textures? I like the one on the top. I want to make my own.

I agree that supermarket breads are not great. Try this recipe.

The top photo that you have has what is called an "open crumb". This is achieved by making a relatively wet dough. (more water to flour). The crust on the the top photo is achieved by introducing steam in the oven during the start of baking.
