Cocotte Bread

So called "Cocotte Bread" is THE quarantine star recipe. So I tried it! And I have to say that it actually works. I used to make lots of bread 10 years ago when I lived in the UK and I would have loved to have that recipe. Baking the bread in a cocotte keeps it soft and avoids it from drying.
