    Lovely flavour, I thought 3 hours was a little excessive for the rise, but it is a very wet dough and it needed it. (I added 50ml less water than the recipe stated). I think next time I won't bother with cutting the holes, although it looks very special it means you have a lot more crust and a lot less crumb. Next time I'll just shape it like a pide.

    Add 100ml less water, otherwise the dough is far too wet to work. Otherwise a delicious bread, springy and light. All the family enjoyed it.
