Bread cloche (500g loaf)
*Made to order when not in stock*
- Photographs show bread made from the same dough, baked in and out of the cloche -
Baking in a cloche keeps the dough in a steamy atmosphere, mimicking steam-injected ovens used in industry and large kitchens and allowing for an evenly cooked, well developed crust and optimum rise. We asked a professional baker, Matthew Wojas, to test them in a domestic oven. He used the same dough to bake four loaves, two in the cloches and two just on a baking tray. He was very taken with the result and pointed out that the loaves baked in the cloches were considerably lighter than the others. This is a sure indication, other than the look and size difference, that the crust was able to open and develop more steadily, letting more moisture out of the loaf during baking.
These cloches are much lighter than cast iron pots that are usually used for the same purpose. They can also can be used for storing and heating brought or previously baked breads at home.
