      The flavour is non existent in this recipe. I find I get much better bread from my regular starter. Who knew flour, water and time would taste better for less effort. I will say this though; it looked and felt magnificent.

      I have the worn cookbook Nancy Silverton's Bread from the La Brea Bakery in front of me and this recipe isn't. She uses organic grapes & measures in pounds & ounces. She very seldom uses yeast, she uses natural levening. I've made these breads for years using the starter that began in 1996. Ask the library for a copy of this cookbook. Please.

      BTW, I did not make this in food processor, just did it in a bowl & hand kneading. I concur with the other comments on the flavor. It's lacking. This was the first white bread that I ever made that had good texture and consistency. So it gave me hope. But the flavor was disappointing. There just wasn't much there. No yummy yeasty sour taste or smell. However, I'm going to give it one more try just as a doublecheck. I did enjoy watching and learning the grape fermentation process.

      The bread's texture and appearance were very good, but we didn't care for the flavor. The dough seemed too thick, so I added a little more milk.

      My husband and I between us have tried this recipe 3 times with the red grape starter and all three times get a consistency and taste closer to air and not-really-sour bread after all the extra effort. We even tried following Nancy's loose preparation, taking recipe notes, after watching her make a rustic on television. We live in Mexico where we can't just buy hard-crusted bread, yet we'll have to give up the hope of ever enjoying it here unless we get help. What are we doing wrong? Shelley Sena
