The hunt for the perfect crumb started after I tried Jim Laheys 'No-knead Bread'. Maybe I wasn't making the bread the right way, maybe it wasn't the right recipe?
One of my friends came by with some two days old bread he had baked.
His bread had it all! Perfect crust, perfect crumb - I needed to get the secret.
A sourdough bread made from scratch.
I highly recommend getting Chad Robertson's book, It describes all you need to know about making the starter and this amazing bread.
