    Matt - I might have missed this in earlier posts, but do you have any special equipment in your kitchen to bake this bread? The last few loaves have looked amazing.

    Nope. Just an oven. Thanks.

    The last one was just on a cookie sheet. The one before on a stone.

    This is the one we were given. Our very own food celebrity even wrote a blurb on the back:

    http://www.amazon.com/Peter-Reinhart.../dp/1580089984


    Is this the book that you're using?

    I didn't think you could cook bread that looked this good at home in a regular oven. I'd like to try my hand at it.

    So, we just got a bread maker as a gift. Tried it out last night and...it was excellent! Going to have fun playing around with it.

    Yep..that one, I think: Panasonic SD-BMS102. It makes baguette dough but the shape is a standard rectangle if you cook it in the unit. Yesterday we did a simple white bread and it was really impressive. It also has a strong enough mixer for pizza dough, pasta, and bagels.

    Whole wheat grain bread. (Is that a tautology?)

    I'm now gonna try a slice with some butter and goat cheese. Will report back.

    Too yeasty and lacking some flavour, salt maybe. Not bad, but I don't no if I'll be frequenting this bakery.

    You gotta think that practice makes perfect.

    At least, that is what I told myself after my bread making tries this past week. Mine kind of looked like that: small bubbles, dense looking.

    I know this thread constitutes making bread at home but do you guys have a preference for store bought whole wheat bread? I've been using the WW from Whole Foods and its surprisingly good but I thought I'd ask in here to see if there were any better options.

    i have a feeling they're all made in a same or similar factories.

    my wegmans bakes their own bread so i either get those or go to a local bakery. i find they're generally about the same price ($2-3 for a big baguette $4-5 for a big country loaf)

    you dont have local bakeries near you?

    No, not really. I know WF farms out their baking to an offsite plant, at least in this area. Fuck, for $3 I can't really beat it. Plus, its organic and/or all natural (can't remember which or both) and fairly tasty.
