"We like to eat this bread loaf fresh from the oven when it’s still warm. We eat it with sheep’s cream cheese, red onion, and pumpkin seed oil, liver paté or a pumpkin seed spread."

  • Step 1/4

    • 100 ml water (warm)
    • g fresh yeast
    • 75 g wheat flour
    • tsp sugar
    • kitchen towel
    • large bowl
    • hand mixer with dough hook

    To prepare the first part of the dough, pour warm water into a large bowl and dissolve the yeast in it. Add half of the flour and the sugar. Mix well, then cover the bowl with a kitchen towel. Rest in a warm place for approx. 30 min.

  • Step 2/4

    • g basil
    • g rosemary
    • g parsley
    • g chives
    • ¼ cloves garlic
    • 12½ g butter (soft)
    • 12½ g semolina
    • tsp salt
    • 75 g wheat flour
    • flour for dusting
    • fine grater
    • cutting board
    • knife
    • small bowl

    In the meantime, chop herbs and grate garlic to achieve a paste-like consistency. Combine herbs, garlic, soft butter, semolina, and salt. When the dough has risen, add the herb-mixture. Then knead and gradually add the remaining flour. Transfer dough to a floured surface. Knead until elastic. Set aside once again to rest and rise for approx. 30 min.

  • Step 3/4

    • flour for dusting
    • baking sheet
    • parchment paper

    Split dough into three equal parts and form long logs. Carefully braid those logs to create a loaf. Transfer loaf to a baking sheet, lined with parchment paper and dusted with flour. Cover loaf with a kitchen towel and let rest for 1 hr.

  • Step 4/4

    Pre-heat the oven to 200°C/390°F. Bake braided loaf on the medium rack for approx. 45 – 60 min. If loaf appears to darken too rapidly while baking, cover in parchment paper. When a small, sharp knife comes out clean, the bread is ready.
