Cover the bowl and transfer to the fridge to prove for at least 8–10 hours, or overnight

After this time, remove the dough from the fridge and cut into 2 portions. Shape each half into a long log-shaped loaf, about 3cm thick and place on a baking tray. Cover loosely and leave to prove for a further 2 hours, or until the loaves have doubled in size

Preheat the oven to 210°C/gas mark 6.5

Uncover the proved loaves and bake for 20 minutes in the hot oven. By this time the crust should be crisp and a dark golden brown colour. Transfer to a wire rack to cool before slicing and serving
