Faluche is a traditional bread in the Nord-Pas-de-Calais region of northern France and the Tournai region of southern Belgium. Faluche is a pale white bread that is soft and fairly dense. It is neither a round nor flat bread but looks somewhat like a small deflated soccer ball.
Faluche is made with white flour, baker’s yeast, water, a little salt and oil. In a bakery, faluche was often baked as the oven was just heating up before the main baking.
