The Art of the Boule

Posted in Blog on Apr 13, 2010

I bake cookies (mostly ones that require chocolate), but I’ve never baked bread.

Since baking artistically sounds like the best way to bake, I’m following the directions in Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day. Not only do I like a new baking challenge, but I am committed to doing this before interviewing one of the book’s authors, Zoe Francois.

I’m in the dough-rising phase and a little afraid of how big the dough is getting — it doesn’t quite look like the one I saw in the video on their website. Will it take over my kitchen…?

I hope mine looks like the one on the cover!
