Pain de Campagne - Country French Bread
This is the first bread that I've made that turned out successfully and I think its because the steps were laid out very comprehensively. Its actually NOT a lot of work, considering you can mix the poolish the night before you make the loafs as well as NOT that many ingredients. The hardest part was mixing the 6 cups of unbleached flour in -I swear if I get arthritis in 50 years it'll be because of this bread. but its worth it! Fresh out of the oven, the smell is heavenly and the crackling sound it makes when you first cut into it is divine. My husband said it was restaurant quality good. I served it beside Daube de boeuf provencal, and it soaked up the stews juices really well. If I could get my hands on a whole wheat version -then it would just be too good to be true.

French Beef Stew
Served this tonight with fresh out of the oven home-made pain de campagne and my family swooned over it. That is, grown man, control freak 5 year old and finnicky toddler...and I confess, my puppy liked it too. As always we have our own variations, and I added 2/3 cups of red wine to the mix (in between steps two and three) and dialed down the tomatoes...I only had three fresh roma tomatoes at hand, so I went with it. I also let it simmer on super low for about two hours. All in all, my husband says its the best thing I ever made. Thanks Corwynn!
