Re: What is your boat bread recipe.
I forgot about foccacia, an excellent bread that can be altered in several ways for variety.
RichH, take a look at "Tartine". He reveals some techniques that will be really useful for on boat bread making. No floured counters tops, etc, just kneading in a bucket.
Also, ice cubes (as many as you can) in the bottom of the oven just as you put in the bread to bake will give you a pretty good head of steam that disperses in about 10 minutes. I have altered my technique and the results have been very satisfying. Another good bread book is the "Bread Bible". It is full of typos and other errors, but the reciepes are very good.
