FFWD: Provençal Olive Fougasse...playing catch up!

Photobucket Yikes, Yeast! Although I can't stand the thought of baking with yeast, I might be over it. Well, I recruited my husband to assist, so I could get over it. Yes, I had to go there. For some reason, my husband reads a recipe, sees "yeast" and could care less, but I freak out. Photobucket OK, no joke, this recipe is super easy. No problem following the recipe and ending up with an awesome and delicious loaf of bread. Photobucket My husband made a delicious cream of asparagus soup that we served with the Fougasse and a nice bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon...mmmmmmmmm! Photobucket I saved half the dough in the freezer for another time and it was great for a second time!!! The recipe is from Dorie Greenspan's Around My French Table. Go buy a copy, or borrow my book. I made this a while back, but didn't post, to see how others faired with this recipe, go to http://www.frenchfridayswithdorie.com/?p=1055

  4. Aren't you glad, Gracie, that you made this fougasse? Most of us really liked the taste and texture. It was fun to make. Slashing and gashing is delightful! And, that asparagus soup. Just the season for it. Your bread looks delicious.
