I LOVE this recipe. It is the best crispy, toasty bread recipe I've ever found. It makes excellent crunchy toast, which is excellent for bruschetta. It is so tasty that when I made it for my parents, my Dad began requesting it instead of my Mom's home recipes! Ouch, sorry Mom! This bread does take some time, so you really do have to dedicate a Saturday or Sunday to it. To save time, and washing up, I don't follow all of the directions. I use only one bowl from start to finish (including poolish), and don't half it until I form the actual baguettes. I also use canola oil and saran wrap instead of the wet cloths at the final rising stage (works like a charm). Hope these tips help, folks!
