Against the Grain Baguettes
These are weird.
They are not what I would expect from a baguette. They are ridiculously airy - like when you slice the bread there is no center its simply crust and a cobweb of bread in the center.
They do toast up nicely and give a crunchy crust but they are just too airy for me. I have used these baguettes on several occasions and every time I do feel that they leave something to be desired.
All in all they are good in a pinch but you're better off stocking your freezer with The Grainless Baker or Schar baguettes.
