Artisan Italian Bread
45 mins (prep 20, cooking 25)

This recipe is for the serious bread maker. Use your KitchenAid for a lighter inside (perfect for subs and pasta dishes) or make it 100% hand-made which will produce a bread that is more dense and hearty (for dunking in soups and stews). Buddha says to 'be one with the bread' and make it by hand, but the starter makes 2 batches, so we suggest trying it both ways. You will need to begin making this bread the day before it's needed. The result is three very wonderful artisan loaves of Italian bread that is soft and airy on the inside, and light and crunchy on the outside. This recipe is an adaption of a recipe from Amy Scherber. We've made it simpler with quite a few modifications. :)
