Porcupine Pain- Collaboration with sis in France

I went to France to spend fall with my sister of

As usual I would sit in her kitchen and it would feel like I am visiting a cooking show set. There was a lot of baking and eating until midnight.

This time  we have decided to collaborate a pain, a rustic French bread. She would knead & bake the pain.

Made with ❤

                               And I will just play dressing up the pain.

This recipe below is pain rustique making chef, levain, refreshments for the purpose of using some of it for a new batch, as in traditional bakeries. This process is without using yeast. It is kind of making yogurt which reminds me of the time I learnt how to make natural yogurt with Ayse my turkish friend. Using a spoon of 'old' yogurt to 'activate' 'new' milk into yogurt but as soon as yogurt is ready, we would save 1 spoon 'old' yogurt for the next batch.

    A delectable experience. Simpla et facile. Bon appétit.
