Adapted from a recipe in "A Treasury of Great Recipes" by Mary and Vincent Price, this is an excellent loaf that Mr. Price called his "house bread." He states that it has a taste and texture very close to real French bread. Enjoy it fresh and warm, spread with garlic butter and sprinkled chopped parsley and chives. Mr. Price suggests it is excellent with Dungeness crab, mustard mayonnaise, and Italian Soave white wine. The original recipe employed hand kneading, while this recipe has been updated using a modern mixer (a KitchenAid works great!). Source: Michael Rodgers (Michael in Phoenix), Gail's Recipe Swap.
