I have used 15 % wholegrain spelt flour, 8 % rye flour, 55 % all-purpose flour and 22 % organic wheat flour – this amounted to 600 g of flour and I’ve used 75 % hydration.

It’s an adaptation of a book with a same name written by Slovenian writer Ivan Tavčar in 1917. This book is also adapted as a movie which was made in 1973 and is starring Polde Bibič and Milena Zupančič, both very...
