Weekday routine:

7am: Prepare Levain

do window pane test to see if there is enough gluten network built up. Decide to either shape or let it rest for another stretch and fold.

Do final shaping and place in banneton (sprinkled with rice flour). Cover with shower cap and place in the fridge.

3:30pm (after work the next day)

Pre-heat oven with dutch oven for 1 hour at 450F


Take dough out of fridge. Using a lame slice the top and bake loaf in the dutch oven with cover at 450F for 20 minutes. Make sure to put a pan on the bottom rack so that the crust does not get to hard.

After 20 minutes remove cover and bake for additional 30 minutes.

I do initial mixing in a tupperware then transfer the dough onto a glass type container to stretch and fold. I make two bread at a time, but keeping them separate because it is easier to handle.

Use the banneton as a bowl now rather than its proper use. I dust the top of the dough with flour then move it onto parchment paper then lift into a bowl and cover with shower cap.

Next day, use a lame to make a cut and lift the parchment with dough into dutch oven and spray 3 times with water and cover. Make sure to put a tray underneath so that the crust isn't too hard.
