Directions:
This recipe is made over two days. On day one add together all the starter ingredients. Mix together until all is blended. Cover the bowl with gladwrap and leave to stand for between 12 - 14 hours. To make the bread, add all the bread ingredients plus the starter, then mix at low speed in your trusty mixer for about 6 - 8 minutes until you have a nice elastic dough. Let dough rise at room temperature, covered, until doubled in size. Turn out the dough, cut in half and work each half on a well floured work surface. Work each half into a long flat size about 220cm by 12cm. Repeat with other half. Place both loaves on to baking paper, cover and let rise until nearly doubled. Place on to a baking tray or preheated stone, and cook at 220c for about 25 - 30 minutes until cooked. This should result in a nice chewy crust, slightly soured Italian bread.
