Steps in Breadmaking

Making French bread requires the enchainement phase that is clearly distinct in a logical sequence:

  1. Les Matières Premières (The dosage of raw ingredients) 

  2. Le Pétrissage (The kneading process)

  3. Le Pointage or Piquage (The fermentation process: phase 1)

  4. Le Divisage (The scaling process)  

  5. La Détente (The fermentation process : phase 2)

  6. Le Façonnage (The shaping process)

  7. L'appret (The proofing process)

  8. La Cuisson (The baking process).
