 I love craggy, shaggy, bumpy, lumpy loaves of bread. Honestly, I think they’re a work of art.  All those uneven spots and dents gives personality  to the bread and brings it to life.  Bread that’s formed by hand, punched, stretched, dented and sprinkled with oil, herbs and aromatics creates an interesting specimen that reminiscent of anything from a lunar surface to rock formations.

I think this bread is gorgeous. The uneven and asymmetry are visually appealing. Maybe I prefer that look to a perfectly sculpted loaf of bread because I don’t have the patience to work with any type of baked good long enough to get it perfect.  I’m a slap, sling, throw and go kind of girl.

Imperfections create beautiful works of art.  Just ask any oyster.
