Hi There-

I have 2 questions regarding your parmesan bread. Can I do the overnight fridge ferment for a few days? How will that change the flavor, hopefully increasing sour but I've never used parm before.

Also, did you sprinkle parmesan on the top of your bread to make that gloss?

Hi, Amy. I’m not sure about the answer to your first question as I’ve never tried that but my best guess is that you can do the overnight ferment over the course of a few days.

And I did not sprinkle Parmesan on top of the bread. The dough is spritzed with water before going into the oven and that is what helps to give it the beautiful coloring.

I hope this helps!
