Rustic Italian Breads
In Italy, rustic bread is seriously crusty, with a toothsome crumb and a clean, strong flavor. The most traditional loaf is shaped like a torpedo and contains just four ingredients—flour, water, yeast, and salt. In this lesson, we’ll cover techniques for making bread dough including mixing, hand kneading, and folding. We'll then show you how to use a baking stone and judge doneness in bread.
