A classic French bread recipe found in “The Fleischmann Treasury of Yeast Baking” published in 1962
The French call their long, slender loaves of crusty bread “pain ordiaire,” or “everyday bread.” They serve it at almost every meal, from breakfast where it accompanies the morning coffee or hot chocolate, through dinner, where it is used to “mop up” every bit of sauce or gravy.
