Professional grade flax linen baker’s couche for supporting proofing bread dough, especially baguettes. Placing dough between couche folds help shape the dough and prevents the dough from proofing into each other. It also wicks away a little of the dough’s outer moisture to help develop a skin, help hold the final shape and develop a crisp crust. Dust with white and/or rice flour to prevent dough from sticking. (Note: first time use may require significantly more flour than subsequent uses.) Care instructions: Never wash a baker’s couch. Simply shake or brush off excess flour and air dry. If dough sticks, allow to dry and scrape off. Roll up to store.
