What's going on with store bought French bread?
I've bought three loaves of French bread(the kind in the paper bags, open at one end) in the past two weeks at two different stores. I've previously purchased French bread from both of these stores and it has always been good quality - not the best bread I've ever had but good. These recent purchases have been a step away from white bread. No crisp crust, density more akin to white bread and if you took a rolling pin to it you wouldn't create any crumbs from the crust. Anyone else having similar bad luck?
