It was a strict rule when I was an apprentice.Then return to the bowl and cover with cling film and leave to prove in a warm place until about doubled in size. This should take about 25-30 minutes.Once proved, cut into 2 pieces and shape into loaf form. Place into 2 buttered loaf tins.Cover with cling film and prove until about doubled in size roughly, again about 30 minutes. Do not over prove.At this point pre heat the oven to 220°C, Gas 7Dust with flour the slash the tops with a sharp knife, 2 or 3 times.Bake in the pre heated oven for 15 minutes, the turn down the heat to 200C and cook for a further 10 minutes, or until light brown, golden and cooked.Once baked cool on wire racks and just re warm in a moderate oven before eating.Hot bread straight out of the oven is not good to eat. It needs to cool completely, and then re warmed for a perfect result. They also freeze well.
