What a fabulous recipe! Tastes better than the French Bread loaves you buy in the grocery store bakery! I don't have a bread machine, so I had to proof the yeast and knead by hand, and also used all-purpose flour instead of bread flour. At first I wasn't sure, because the top was not as crispy as I usually like, but once I started eating it, I realized it was perfect as is, and now I'm sad I froze the other loaf, because I wanted more! (FYI-I froze the other loaf as dough before the second rising. To defrost, I leave on the counter, then place on a cookie sheet to rise, then bake as directed.)
