250g or 1/2lb round cane banneton or basket for proofing bread dough
Bannetons or proving baskets are used to support the dough while it rises and just before it goes into the oven to bake it is tipped out and usually scored using a tool called a grignettes (a handled lame or blade) to control how the finished bread looks as it expands in the oven.

Put the dough into the banneton for its final prove, dusting it with rye (or another non-wheat) flour to avoid sticking. If using a baking stone, gently tip the dough from the banneton onto a peel dusted with semolina flour and slide onto the baking stone. If you are using a La Cloche, tip the dough onto the La Cloche base, replace the dome and place in the oven.
