How to Make It

1. Step
Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).
2. Step
Remove the top of each garlic bulb so just the tops of the cloves are exposed. Set the tops aside. Drizzle 1–2 tablespoons of olive oil over top of each bulb, letting the oil seep down between the cloves. Season each bulb with ¼ teaspoon of salt. Place the tops back on each bulb and set in a shallow baking dish.
3. Step
Bake for 20–25 minutes, until the cloves are completely tender, but not mushy. Since the garlic will continue cooking in the bread, you want them a little more firm so they hold their shape in the loaf.
4. Step
Let the garlic to cool until safe to handle. Gentle press on the bottom of each clove to pop it out of its skin. Roughly chop the garlic cloves and set aside.
5. Step
In a large bowl, combine the bread flour, whole wheat flour, chopped garlic, rosemary, and the remaining 2 teaspoons of salt. Stir well with a rubber spatula.
6. Step
In a separate large bowl, combine the warm water, remaining ¼ cup (60 ml) olive oil, and the yeast.
7. Step
Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and use a rubber spatula to stir until the dough just comes together. With your hands, knead the dough in the bowl until there are no dry, floury spots remaining. Cover with a kitchen towel and let rest in a warm place for 60 minutes, or until almost doubled in size.
8. Step
Using the spatula, fold the dough toward the center again 8 more times, rotating the bowl each time. Cover with the towel and let rest for 30 minutes more.
9. Step
Place a Dutch oven with a lid in the oven, and preheat the oven to 450°F (230°C) for 30 minutes.
10. Step
Lightly dust a clean surface and your hands with flour. Carefully turn the dough out of the bowl onto the floured surface. Fold the edges of the dough towards the center 8 times, then flip the dough over and transfer to a piece of parchment paper.
11. Step
Carefully remove the Dutch oven from the oven (it will be very hot) and use the parchment to lift the bread into the pot. Cover with the lid.
12. Step
Bake the bread for 30 minutes. Remove the lid and reduce the oven temperature to 425°F (220°C). Bake for 20 more minutes, until the bread is golden brown.
13. Step
Carefully slide the bread out of the pot and onto a wire rack. Remove the parchment paper and let the bread cool for at least 1 hour before slicing.
14. Step
Slice the bread and serve as desired.
