I finally managed to do a decent baguette. It involves a very wet dough that you handle carefully. This batch didn't have much flavor since they were made without a preferment, but nto bad for a first try. 

Still waiting for the repair guy that was supposed to be here sometime after 8am. It is now nearly 4pm, one hour and ten minutes until the service window is up. I've already decided never to use Sears again for repairs, they expect you to have all day to wait for them to eventually show.

What's your secret? I can't get that loose, holey texture right :(. Is more liquid key? I love that texture!

Follow this recipe and method. I didn't do the oven steaming since it was a test batch, and quite frankly I"m too lazy to do most of the oven steaming stuff.
