    Mean Chef has an excellent recipe. Keep in mind, though that results also depend on the quality of your flour. You missed a good online baking session hosted by Meanie.
    PS. Could you please NOT SHOUT. icon_wink.gif

    To get that chewy crust, you need to have steam in the oven. That can be accomplished by setting a pan or dish of water in the bottom of the oven and/or misting the bread lightly with water during baking. Most good French Bread recipes will include these instructions with the recipe.
