Wow, the smell of rosemary while this lovely bread is baking is simply amazing. Please use fresh rosemary, it really infuses the flavor into the bread. This bread does not require a bread pan; it is shaped by hand into a dome shape; resulting in a crusty, firm, dense, bread that is perfect in casseroles and stews; it is also wonderful for soaking up all the great flavors. It has a shelf life of 4 - 5 days if wrapped in plastic.
