Sourdough Challah

Having already bought two of Emmanuel Hadjiandreou's books as presents, I was intrigued by his latest: How to Make Sourdough, and have borrowed it from the library.  I also wanted to practice a six plait loaf, so chose the Sourdough Challah.  I left it to prove overnight in the conservatory, and baked the two side by side on the same sheet.  I'm not sure what caused all those little blisters under the glaze.

The bread was light and airy...but maybe we have been having rather tasty bread recently, and they tasted rather bland.  These were the first white loaves for some time!  I shall have a go at a few other recipes and then decided whether I shall buy the book.
