Brown Bread with Antipasti

Serves: 8-10
Prep time: 45 mins

When making bread make sure you put a timer on for 10 mins, knead the bread for the entire 10 mins, don’t stop even when your hands get tired. Trust us, it will all be worth it. If your bread is sticking to the counter, avoid adding more flour (it will dry it out), add a bit of oil, it should work like a charm.
