I would emphasize the importance of forming a tight boule in order to support the oven spring in this rather gassy dough. Terrific texture as well.
Almond butter and apricot jam I really like the look of that crumb. Interesting background information. When I have more time, I will bake this particular recipe since my baking lists is getting longer each day.

I love the very thick crust and the open crumb! This bread reminds me of the breads my grandma used to make in an WFO, many years ago. She used to oil the pans, too, and the crust had a wonderful flavour. The long fermentation time is because the small amount of the prefermented flour, I guess.
Do you think it's a bad idea to proof the shaped dough in the fridge overnight? I don't think I can fit in my schedule 1h autolyse, 2h bulk fermentation, 5h final proof, and 1h baking. If I were to cold retard these loaves, I think I'd do it right after they are shaped. The fully proofed loaves are so gassy, I'd be afraid to retard them. If you retard the loaves right after shaping, it would probably take an extra hour for the final proof.

I made a lot of mistakes along the way, it's not as beautiful as yours, but I'll make it again, cause the flavor given by long fermenation and olive oil is very very pleasant. Late in finding this formula I got tired of the stuff and have been on the look out for an easier and less wasteful solution. I found several different types of, what I call, mini-shower cap type covers. Prices were all over the place as was quality.
