Chef's Notes: This is a free-form bread, so you can bake it in larger or smaller pieces as you wish. By using a special technique to stretch and fold the loose dough, you can make it beautifully strong and elastic. And don't be intimidated by the total time: much of it will be spent fermenting the dough. (For baking, accurate metric measurements produce the best results, so we recommend using a digital scale for this recipe.)
