breaking into a crusty bread, the waft of steam that hits you ummm you can smell god,there is nothing on earth so surreal. This is my first experience in baking artisan style bread. In this virtual age I have a bread baking guru Dillon Kesur who lives on a farm in Tasmania. He entices many of his followers through his rustic breads and food that talks to the soul... This is a Sullivan street Bakery recipe I have finished it with semolina and flour just as Dillonji dose as it is quite easily found in our kitchens. Feel free to use the topping of your choice.
