One issue i found was I had used 2 wicker baskets lined with muslin as proofing bowls. When I turned the boules out onto my peel they had developed a crust. That made it difficult to score them cleanly.
The finished bread was crusty and chewy , and a bit dry, I may have over baked them. That's why it's called a challenge! lol !
It appears i will be doing this one again ! Here are my photos. I had already given away two so I had only one to shoot.
