Lean to make incredible Artisan Bread Here
Peter starts by giving basic bread baking advice. Use top quality ingredients he explains. Employ unbleached rather than bleached flour. Use only as much yeast as needed to get the job done. Mix the dough as long as needed. Make sure you use higher hydration (water) levels for the dough.
This is an incredible class that I can not recommend enough!
