My cultural project "Sourdough Bread Storytelling - The Romanian Traditional Village"
This is my second loaf that is part of my new project "Sourdough Bread Storytelling - The Romanian Traditional Village". It contains nettles and caraway. Two intense flavors, but they match surprisingly well!
I scored the bread with "wolf tooth" - symbolizing house protection and "rozeta" - a solar symbol. Both symbols are very popular in some parts of Romania (for instance in Maramures), as they were used by local carvers for decorating the traditional wooden gates. Rozeta had many graphic variations, depending on the carver's imagination. The one I displayed is one of them.
