A Great Lunch!

A delicious bread that Len baked: "Sunflower Seed Bread with Pâte Fermentée."



This recipe is from Jeffrey Hamelman's book Bread: A Baker’s Book of Techniques and Recipes, published in 2013. According to the introduction: 

“Hearty and aromatic, it is particularly delightful with hard cheeses, peanut butter, various jams and preserves, or just toasted with butter.”  (p. 132) 

That’s exactly what we ate — plus some avocado as shown in the last photo.

That bread looks fabulous! It works with all kinds of great additions from your photos. Where did he get the recipe? I bought a bag of seeds for bread but haven't used them yet.

That bread looks wonderful by itself straight out of the oven. And with the additions in the last photo (my favorites both) even beyond that!
