This, by far, has been the hardest Daring Baking challenge yet! Not only is it a bread recipe, but it's a Julia Child recipe! This is expert level baking here!! Truth be told, if I need French bread in the future, I will be heading over to the grocery and buying it. Holy cow is all I have to say.
To save those who don't care how to make French bread from reading the longest post in the world, go to this link: BreadChick and all the instructions are there! Enjoy!!
