They so crusty and lovely! Cornmeal on the pan really adds a touch.
First rise: coated in oil.
Oh the travails of kneading and mixing flour!
Semolina flour is delightful.
This recipe was a little less intense than those of Daniel Leader's Bread Alone as in it didn't require scales and three kinds of thermometers. ayee! Once again, I quote from the Silver Palate cookbook. Yum!
I was inspired by all of the Gloucester Italian semolina bread usage..and thought: yes I can!
I'll post the recipe shortly
