Pa de Pages, Our Modest Catalan Bread

Pa de Pages, Vic, Catalonia [enlarge]

In Catalonia when we make things we make it big like say, this modest, tiny, insignificant bread. Hansel and Gretel would have had bread crumbs enough to leave a generous trail behind them, feed the birds and make a nice toast at the end of the road. Pa de Pages is, I quote: "...a rustic round loaf, baked in a shaped tin, containing wheat flour, water, salt and starter dough. It has a generous crumb and thick crust. The body of the bread is dense and rich in flavour, and it can be kept for several days providing that it is bought unsliced..." ( I recommend you browse this interesting site to find a quite complete compilation of Catalan products and recipes.
