BBA Slow and Steady : Pain a l'Ancienne

While I had baked the Multigrain bread as far as January I baked this loaves yesterday evening ! I do not know exactly what scared me, maybe I knew they weren't going to be the most beautiful ones being a very wet dough and I'm sure I still have all to learn but at least the flavour was very good !

I scored only three of them as my scoring is very poor . The unscored ones look some specialty bread they make in a bakery in the Ghetto (it is still called so even it is not a ghetto anymore of course, and has become a very fashonable place to live ) they call the Ossi ( ossa in correct italian means Bones because they are more stretched in the middle part looking a bit like a thigh bone).
Please visit the rest of the group ( Kayte, Nancy,Cathy,Audrey,Jessica, Melissa, Wendy, Di, Karen,Natalia,Sarah,Margaret, Tracey, and Leslie ) and the original BBA site for more bread.

They look great, and that shot of the insides is really wonderful. We love the flavor of this bread also, and it was a lot easier than I thought it would be...maybe the title scared me, I'm not sure, but this is a definite repeat! Yours look wonderful.

I loved this bread; beauty is in the tasting too!
So, I'm not sure about the spelling but we once stayed in "Osstia" outside of Rome and know for it's graves. Dull of me not to make the connection with bones at the time.
