Last week I wrote about our first farmers market of the season – which, by the way, almost nobody read. This week I am writing about something a little more inspirational (I hope).

My wife and I love hearing suggestions from the market-goers, and we try to prepare stuff for the next week based on the suggestions we get. So…we listened to a lot of folks who wanted bread! I love baking bread using a dutch oven – a la no knead bread – because it gives the final product a great crust. But how do you do that with a baguette, which is what I wanted to make.

As I was pondering this, I realized I had no baguette bags – so as it often does in situations like this, inspirations struck. I decided to bake the bread in its own bag by creating a parchment tent around the dough. From the photos you can see that the end product developed a golden crust. The texture was good but not great, and the thickness wasn’t quite where it should be, but it was a start.

Check out my blog next Sunday for more photos from my second attempt. I’ll get more detailed – I promise!
