Pain rustique - thanks to dmsnyder

dmsnyder's recent blog entry "San Joaquin sourdough two ways" ( piqued my interest.

I had to try my hand at Pain rustique. I stuck to the recipe faithfully. I found the dough rather soft and had trouble shaping it. The dough didn't stay in shape for the last proofing phase, and the little buns appeared a bit flat but the final result is everything I had hoped for. This is my 1st. attempt at SJSD and I will definitely keep at it.

merci beaucoup mon amie

I am happy you enjoyed the SJSD/Pain Rustique!

I proof these between folds of a baker's linen couche. That keeps the pieces from spreading too much.

Happy baking!
