Usually I post things to get the nutritional info, but this one is so worth sharing. My husband says this is the best bread he has tasted. It's another recipe by the fabulous Laura Calder on Food TV Canada's 'French Food at Home.' I made this by hand and it was as easy as homemade bread can be. Any dried herbs can be used for this, and it can also be made without any herbs, but it's not as good. I used McCormick's Herbes de Provence, which is a blend of rosemary, marjoram, thyme, savory, basil, lavender and sage. Makes an excellent accompaniment for any French or Italian dish, or serve it toasted and open faced with butter, slices of fresh tomatoes and your favourite cheese. It's so good.
