Are you tied to it being a yeast-leavened loaf? If not, I've got a load of GF recipes for quinua than can easily be adapted for millet. It might be an idea to look for breads where (if they were made with wheat) the gluten development wouldn't be a factor in the bread's texture.

Do you have access to flax seed and a spice grinder, or some psyllium fibre powder? I find they don't work quite as well as xanthan/guar gums, but they're a decent substitute. Boil the water in the recipe and add about 3/4 tbsp of either flax meal or psyllium fibre/cup of water. You'll end up with a mucilaginous mixture that somewhat approximates the effect of the gums. Wait for it to cool before using it in recipe.

      Having no local Arabic bakery, I have long hoped to learn to make good khoubz at home. Every time I try, however, my bread is too stiff and tough. I have been successfully making other breads using The Bread Baker's Apprentice, and now wonder if my bread woule benefit from an overnight ferment in the refrigerator.
      FoodMan (and anyone) can you help me?

      San Diego has a small number of artisanal bread bakeries. Bread & Cie has been my favorite for years, and their breads are now available in many supermarkets, which is very convenient. But it's nice to have some variety. So I was excited to spot a new bakery this weekend in Linda Vista. It's called Pacific Time and it is also a sandwich place with a small market with things like small-batch preserves, local beers, a cheese counter, charcuterie platters, and wine. It's located within a recently renovated strip mall that also hosts Brew Mart & Ballast Point.
       
      The bread I bought was a French-type rustic boule, dark, a bit reminiscent of Poilane but less dense. The crust could have been a little more crispy (it felt like the bread had sat around a little bit and softened in the paper bag), but the flavor was wonderful.
       

       

       
      Here is the bread:

      The team over at Modernist Cuisine announced today that their next project will be an in-depth exploration of bread. I personally am very excited about this, I had been hoping their next project would be in the baking and pastry realm. Additionally, Francisco Migoya will be head chef and Peter Reinhart will assignments editor for this project which is expected to be a multi-volume affair.
