Sourdough Boule to usher in Chinese New Year!

So in tradition, to 'close the kitchen' for this year before the Chinese Lunar New Year celebrations, I decided to bake two loaves of sourdough boules.

Straight forward recipe of starter, water, flour and salt. 12 hour fermentation, shaping and into the oven it went!

Pretty good close to the year right?


And also some other shots including some Dragon Cookies baked for the celebrations this weekend as well as some sourdough pancakes just for fun! :D

What lovely bread!  Lightly baked, but with a lovely crunch...looks a perfect boule in my opinion.
