Emile Henry Bread Cloche

If the bread-making bug has stuck post Covid, why not up your baking game with the attractive Emile Henry Bread Cloche. Designed in 2014, this lovely ceramic piece from the estimable French pottery is essentially a mini oven, perfect for any bread-baking, especially the popular no-knead sourdough loaf everyone has made at least once. While a good Dutch oven does the trick, this beautiful domed cloche takes the process a step further by making it far easier to put the dough in and take the loaf out. Durable, gorgeous, easy to use and extremely well-designed, Emile Henry’s products make lovely gifts and create much-loved family treasures, worthy of many generations’ use.
