In a large bowl, mix the flour, salt and yeast. While stirring, gradually add 350ml of lukewarm water. It should be a soft and sticky dough. Then cover the bowl as airtight as possible and leave the dough at room temperature for 12 to 18 hours. The long walking time allows the yeast to develop, which makes the finished bread airy.

After baking, wait until the bread has cooled off a bit. So the interior will stay juicy

After walking, lay the dough on the work surface and turn it over a few times. The dough is simply turned over and not kneaded. Cover with a dishcloth and let the dough rest for another 2 hours.

Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 200 ° along with the baking tray. Spread the dough on the hot sheet, put it in the oven and bake until a crunchy crust is formed.
