Farm Bread (Herb Bread) and Fougasse

In last night’s last International Breads class we made Farm Bread (Herb Bread) and Fougasse.

Farm Bread is an herb bread made from using a starter prepared at least a week in advance. It also has a combination of bread flour and whole wheat flour. The herb flavouring come from creating a paste from garlic, fresh basil, fresh thyme, fresh rosemary, fresh oregano, and olive oil which is them added near the completion of the forming of the dough.

Fougasse is a leaf shaped, flattish loaf from the South of France. It can be baked as a plain bread which is what we did last night, or it can be flavoured with cheese, anchovies, herbs, nuts, or olives.

L to R: Fougasse, and Farm Bread.
