French Linen Couche Cloth


5 in stock

A one metre piece (1m x 70cm) of natural linen for proofing your dough. Made by Matfer France.

Couche (French for bed) is coarse woven linen that is folded to make a bed for the rising dough. This is useful for making longer bread shapes such as baguettes.  Similar to the bannetons,  it requires  flouring before use and can be used to line bannetons if desired.  This results in losing some of the pretty patterns created by the bannetons, though it does eliminate any chance of the dough sticking to the cane.  Made by Mafter France.
