I suppose it is a little dubious to be apprenticing from a book but I'm doing my darnedest to from "The Bread Baker's Apprentice" by Peter Reinhart and "Amy's Bread" by Amy Scherber and Toy Kim Dupree. The two bread that I have been working on are Amy's Walnut Scallion Bread (delicious) and Peter's Ciabatta (hard to work with such a wet dough). The breads get a little better every time but I've still got to play around to get the right crust and coolness of the crumb. Anyways, here are some loaves I've baked.
Lots of bread (the left two are the ciabattas and the rest are walnut scallion (my roommate really loves walnut scallion bread so we bake lots of it).
