Thanks for posting the recipe -- it sounds delicious! My parents are coming for a visit this weekend, and maybe I'll give it a shot. Mom would be so impressed...

BTW - How is the Ultimate Bread book? Worth picking up?

That Ultimate Bread book is FANTASTIC. I've used so many recipes in there - and they do a really good job of explaining the chemistry of bread making, etc. - so everything you're doing begins to make sense. I also like how they group the breads and describe the history behind the loaf, the area it's from, the cultural celebrations and traditions it's associated with. My favorite is the Ciabatta.
