In the years that I have been making my various breads I have always used bannetons or bowls. I bought some baskets recently, to try a new way, but the dough stuck to the baskets too easily. Two weeks ago was the first time that I incorporated linen lining to the baskets. The first loaves, pictured above, came out a little bit too floury. This last weekend I was more successful at not applying too much flour, and getting it brushed off better. I love that I can now buy inexpensive baskets, of identical size, and still get my beautiful crust with a touch of design on it!
