    Put into a food-processor bowl: 1 kg flour, 200 g leaven, 30 g yeast and 9 g salt.
  4. 11 min.Saucipain : Photo of step #4
    Start kneading on minimum speed, then pour in 650 ml red wine.

    Knead for 3 minutes like this, then on speed "1" for a further 8 minutes. When the dough temperature reaches 75°F (24°C, it is ready).

    Note: For the best way to knead, see: A few tips for effective kneading at home.

    Once the dough is made, go back to minimum speed and tip in the diced sausage and pistachios.

    Gather the dough (you will notice it is a strange pinky-mauve colour) into a ball and put into a clean bowl. Cover with a sheet of plastic and leave for 1 hour.

    After this time, divide the dough into 200 g pieces. Roll these into balls and leave covered with a sheet of plastic to rest for 20 minutes.
  7. 2 hours
    After this time, press the balls flat, then shape them into thin baguettes or "ficelles", as shown in this short video.

    Leave the saucipains covered with a sheet of plastic to rest for 2 hours.

    Preheat the oven to 460°F (240°C) and bake the saucipains for about 20 minutes until nicely browned.

    Note: As when baking any bread, you should ensure that the oven is filled with steam for the first 15 minutes of baking. This page shows you how; it really is the secret of golden-brown, crusty loaves..


If you don't have salami, use any cooked sausage you like.
