  • About

A Small Percentage of Yeast, a high Percentage of prefermented flour, and long fermentation characterize Country Bread. It keeps well due to the high level of pre-ferment, and has a good clean flavor that supports many different foods. It is an attractive bread, with its floured surface and confident scoring pattern. Ovals or rounds are the shapes of choice, although small crusty rolls or large, substantial boules can also be made.
