All my pan au levain is eaten up. I guess it's time to pull the chef out of the fridge and kick off another batch.

A good slather of butter hides the salt deficiency quite well.

Baguette tasting notes:

* Crumb / texture: nailed it
* Crust: also perfect
* Flavour: pretty bland. Chef is still pretty young & I didn't add enough salt

Overall rating: 6/10

Boule is very meh, probably should have just made 3 baguettes. Oh well, so pleased with the two baguettes that I don't even mind. Waiting for them to cool off is the hardest part!

OK, I'm pretty darn chuffed with how these 2 turned out. Boule got too hot / unevenly baked, possibly. Giving it a few more minutes because despite being quite dark on one side it didn't sound hollow.

An inconvenient day for my bread paddle to fall apart 🤨

Dough is divided and resting. I think two will be shaped into baguettes and one will be a boule.

Wednesday night is tabletop RPG night. Our Dungeon Crawl Classics campaign is now interstate; since we can't all be in the same room anyway, we reinstated a player that moved out of town. ☺️

Finally got my chef (sourdough starter) rolling today.

Rubbish sleep last night. Had a nap this arvo after doing chores and listening to Puddles the Clown.
