Although this bread is dairy free, it tastes like regular French Bread. I specifically named it dairy free french bread because being Lactose Intolerant, I know how hard it is to find good quality recipes that won’t make me sick. So I hope whether you have a dairy allergy or not you enjoy this delicious bread.
