This bread remind of the time i lived in Provence for a few years and each time i visit my mother on holidays i always get one at a local bakery. I previously posted a recipe for a blue cheese fougasse and this one was inspired by a TV chef called ” Lorraine Pascal”. I always ate olive or cheese fougasse but her chorizo version inspired me and i had to try it .
*250 grs of bread flour
*4 grs of dry yeast
*150 ml of water
*75 grs of cooked diced chorizo
*1 tbsp of herbes de Provence
*1 tsp of salt
1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius .
2.In a large bowl mix together all the dry ingredients. Make a well in the center and pour the water .
3.Knead the dough for about 10 minutes on a floured surface.
4.Add the chorizo and knead until it is combined to the rest of the dough.
5.Using a rolling pin , flatten the bread to a desired shape . With a sharp knife , cut some slashes in the dough.
6.Place the bread on a baking tray and let it rise covered with cling film in a warm place for an hour.
7.Once risen bake for 30 minutes .
