The evening turned out really nice and we had plenty of dips besides my bakes. While I was busy with my demo (and the baby, yes, he was there as well, Thanks to the girls who took care of him when I had to start the demo), I didn't ask about the recipes for those couple of dips which had a hit of curry and orange. It was mind-blowing!
Today's recipe was previously posted in French. I'm re-posting it in English because the girls loved the taste and the texture (beside the practically no effort required to make it) and asked for the recipe..
This recipe is taken from f Chef John's website. an amazing blog with videos.
I'm sending this to Susan's blog: wild yeast (YeastSpotting).
Makes 1 loaf
Prep: 10 min / Rest: 20 hours / Cooking time: 35 min
- 3 cups flour
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- ½ tsp dry yeast (double if using fresh cubes)
- 1 ½ tsp salt
- 2 cups warm water
Sift all ingredients in a bowl. Mix with a spatula. Cover and let stand for 18 hours at room temperature. The dough should have a sticky consistency, so do not panic!
After 18 hours, the dough will look very spongy.
Take a baking sheet covered with parchment (otherwise, grease it with olive oil). Sprinkle generously with fine semolina). Spread the dough by stretching in a way to have a rectangular shape.
Cover and let stand for about 2 hours ( I covered with oiled cling film so it does not stick).
Sprinkle with flour (generously).
Preheat oven to 220 degrees C and cook for 30 to 35 minutes.
