This bread is AMAZING!! it is from this book called 'Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day' and what a revelation this book is. You make a lot of dough without any need to knead and this stays in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. You can shape it how you like and the book has lots of different ideas as well as various recipes for different types of dough like Flatbreads and Enriched breads. The bread is wonderful. I tend to stick to the Boule dough as I love the thick crunchy crust and the lovely interior of the bread. As it spends longer in the fridge the dough takes on more of a sourdough flavour. We had ours with fresh butter and it really was very very delicious. The method here is very important and it can be found on the internet. There is another method/recipe around called No Knead Bread and even though this is good, it is more time consuming than this method and produces a very similar loaf of bread. Have a search for it and give it a go.
