Re: fresh star bread

I also grew up with Italian Star bread -- in Somerville, MA. The bakery was in Ball Square (remember when towns had squares?).

Can anyone refresh my memory here: did the bread have 4 points or five? Was the crust thin but crisp, and the inside light and chewy, but with a less-dense texture than usual Italian white breads?

I'm dying to try to make this but I think I need just a little more info. If you can help, please send me a note at
