Italian Pagnotta Loaf
This week is getting very food focused; but with the remnants of Storm Ciara outside it is not surprising.
Very successful first session on the Italian Bread Making Course, learning about pagnotta, a simple rustic loaf. I have been making bread for a while but this highlighted that I still have a lot to learn.
The tutor made this loaf using dough that had been prepared using very little yeast (1-2 grams) but a long proving time; and then baked using a dutch oven technique.
It was delicious. Have made my own dough which I will attempt to bake tomorrow using the same technique.
