How I made
Day before baking
On the baking day
After 20 minutes cut it into two equal pieces form a batard/loaf transfer to well floured tea towel placed in a try. Place the dough cut side upward on the tray then pinches the fabric between each so that they stay separated. Cover and let it allow rising for another 45 minutes. After 45 minutes, carefully transfer the batard into baking tray sprinkle with cornmeal/semolina. (Make sure that no garlic cloves gets exposed, then they burn and become bitter).
Slice and enjoy as much you want.
