Breadmaking-this was my first attempt at making Fougasse, and it was very successful. I can't believe how good this bread tasted, and how easy it was. I did the par baking for some of the batch to freeze and even when I took them out of the freezer and finished the baking they were delicious. I will definitely be making these again, they are such fun to shape.
I highly recommend Richard Bertinet's book "Dough-Simple Contemporary Bread". His book also includes a DVD and he has such great simple instructions with photos for step-by-step procedure. There are lots of recipes and variations, I've tried about three different breads so far. You will never want to buy that store bought bread again.
I'm even a butter person for bread and you don't even need to put any on this, that's how good it is.
