Hint 1: If the top is getting too dark while baking, tent the
bread with some aluminum foil.
Hint 2: If you use a cast iron skillet to cook the bread in
the oven, be very careful when you take the pan out. It's
easy to forget that the handle is extremely hot. Cool the
handle with an ice cube, or put a pot holder over it.
Transfer bread to a rack to let cool briefly. Serve bread
warm, at room temperature, or sliced and toasted. (11/20/2007)
