Or mix in seeds, spices or grains to your Artisan Bread Recipes when doing the final kneading. This will add texture to the bread.

Slicing the top of the loaf prior to baking will cause the dough on the inside to open the slit. This will produce a beautiful relief pattern on your bread and make it look very festive.

Placing a pan of water on the bottom rack of the oven while baking will help to give you a crisp crust.

Misting bread lightly with water during baking will provide you with a crisp crust.

Painting the dough before baking with an egg wash will make the bread come out of the oven with a glossy top crust.

If it looks like your bread is getting too dark on the top for the amount of cooking time left cover it lightly with a piece of aluminum foil until almost done. Then remove the foil and finish baking.

Use any shaped container that you like to bake your Artisan Bread Recipes. You can use your set of cooking pots and pans as long as they are oven proof. Use tin cans, pie plates, new clean clay flower pots, dutch ovens, aluminum foil shapes... anything as long as it is oven proof.
