Tip for Serving Dutch Oven Breads

This is a great tip for serving dutch oven breads that I learned from Ranes Carter: flip the dutch oven and use the lid as a serving platter.

  1. When your bread is done, remove the ash and transfer the hot dutch oven to the serving area.
  2. The lid has a handle, which prevents it from sitting level on the table. Set out an inverted trivet or non-plastic bowl to hold the lid.
  3. Ensure the breadstuff will come out easily. Loosen from the edges with a fork if needs be.
  4. Replace the lid on the dutch oven, then quickly flip the entire dutch oven upside down. Rest it on the inverted trivet or non-plastic bowl.
  5. Remove the dutch oven, leaving the lid. Voilà! The breadstuff is ready for serving.
  6. If you’re super picky about the fact that it’s upside down, go ahead and carefully flip the breadstuff. (Note: Not all breadstuff is conducive to this kind of abuse.)

Thanks, Ranes!
