Perfect Baguette: IV

The baguettes are coming along nicely. Here's a second batch using the recipe from Baking Artisan Bread by Ciril Hitz....

They turned out even better this time. The crust is nice and crispy-chewy, and my stipples are looking prettier. I forgot to take a picture of the inside, but it was pretty good - not enough holes though. I guess I'm still not proofing it long enough, or maybe I'm degassing it improperly. I'll roll the dough more gently on batch 3 to see if that helps.

Those baguettes look fantastic! Haven't made bread for a few weeks - guess what I will be doing this week? Thanks for the inspiration.
