When I saw a photo of Mike McGibbon’s bread fresh out of his wood fired hearth oven, I coaxed him into sending more photos. Of course I wanted to share them with everyone. Mike has certainly carved out a little slice of heaven in his home state of Wisconsin. Denyce and I were in his neighborhood several years ago and hope to get up there again soon. It’s gorgeous country.
The bread pictured here happens to be the Cook’s Illustrated Almost No Knead recipe. Wow! If all the bread Mike bakes looks even half that good, I have to think his family and friends are especially fortunate to have Mike around and appreciative of his talents.
