How to use a bread proofing cloth
Add a light, even layer of flour to the couche. Fold the fabric into several creases that will support the dough during proofing. Fill the creases with your shaped mixture, cover, and let rise.
After the couche cloth has been transferred to the baking pan, the pastry is ready to be baked. Clean the couche by brushing off excess flour and allowing it to air dry. Be careful not to tear the fabric if you scrape with force. The fabric should never be washed.
