This is pure 100% linen cloth for using for proving bread. It’s one of those essential items I always suggest in my breadmaking classes.
I use a couche whenever I make bread whether it is baguettes or round or oblong loaves. You simply add plenty of flour and form a pleat between each bread to help keep the shape as in the example shown. It also absorbs a little of the moisture from the bread and helps form a crust.
The couche material measures 70 cm x 100 cm. Please note that the couche material I am selling has no pattern on it. The examples shown are my own couche brought back from France.
There is a limited quantity available, cut to order and it is sold at a very reasonable price which includes shipping within the UK.
