“These are chewy, crusty loaves that have all the aroma of a traditional yeast bread, but they don't take all the time. Quick rise yeast shortens proofing time, and smaller pans trim baking time. From Cooking Pleasures magazine. This is great served with Kansas City Steak Soup. This is a rustic bread, originating in Europe(England and France)”
