I was watching an unusual movie from on demand named Sring 1941. There was a scene that place in a Polish farmer home. The female farmer inserted a peel into an old oven in the wall and pulled out aloaf of bread htat looked like it must weigh 4 or 5 kilos and had a hich dome which I understand is not typical of a miche.

Does anyone have any recipe, instruction,comments on such a loaf.

 I thought the movie which took place in Poland in 1941 as the Nazi's invaded was a good movie but expect to do some crying especially at the end.    Herb

Peter Reinhart's Bread Bakers Apprentice includes a formula for Poilane style Miche (boule) that, while it is not 4 or 5 kilos, is a nice large boule with great appeal.
