How to Get Your Bread to Rise

Be patient, the slower and longer the bread takes to rise the better the flavour. On a warm day the bread may double in size in half an hour, but on a cool day can take up to 2-3 hours. Allowing the dough to prove twice results in a much finer crumb and prevents gaping airholes than if you let it prove just the once. 

Peter Sidwell shares his top tips to help you rise to the occasion in this short video.
