One thought on “BREADalert 6.25.15 | Cheddar Garlic (x3)

  1. My office loved the bread! Here’s some feedback:

    Positives
    – Crust was DELIGHTFUL. Flavor and texture were fantastic.
    – Appearance of the loaf was comforting and impressive.
    – The density / fluffiness of the bread was exactly what I like
    – I like that you can taste the garlic, but it doesn’t slap you in the face

    Deltas
    – Seemed a bit underdone. I love moist breads, but this was a bit much
    – I would have preferred a bit more flavor (garlic, etc)
    – Since the crust was so amazing, the middles slices were slightly less enjoyable because of the ratio of crust to center.

    Maybe a baguette would be a good way to help with some of these points?
