  1. In a bowl using a wooden spoon combine starter water and half of the high-grade flour.
  2. Add salt the slowly add the remaining flour 1/2 a cup at a time, once it can’t be mixed with the wooden spoon start using your hands to mix it in, continue to add the flour until it begins to resemble as a dough.
  3. Shape the dough into two or three large oval shapes loaves then place in a baking tray in a warm place covered with a damp towel. Set it aside for 12 hours or until the dough doubles in size.
  4. Add some slits on the dough surface then place it on a cold oven (not preheated) then turn the temperature setting to 180C then bake for 50-60 minutes or until the surface turns golden brown and crisp.
  5. Remove from oven then let it cool for at least 30 minutes prior to serving.
