Made this last night, and it was amazing! We didn't have any walnuts, so I just omitted them. Also didn't have whole wheat flour, but I did have medium rye, so I did 2/3 c rye flour and the rest unbleached AP flour. The rye flour made the dough REALLY sticky, so I ended up having to add close to 1/3 c extra flour for kneading, but it eventually became manageable. Popped it in the oven for 30 minutes, and by the time it came out, my B/F was hovering in the kitchen waiting for it to cool. HE COULDN'T GET ENOUGH OF IT! Can't wait to see how it is the next day! Thank you for what is sure to be a staple bread in our apartment now!
I made this as a gift so I'm reviewing it on the taste of the dough (which was really scrumptious) and the workability of the recipe (which was excellent). The dough was very easy the work with and with a tiny sprinkle of flour not at all sticky. I loved the flavors of the herbs with the mellow flavor and crunch of the walnuts. I'm very sure that I'll be making this as a keeper quite soon.
