1. Mix flour and salt in a bowl, then add yeast and water.
  2. Combine with a wooden spoon until it just comes together (2 min).
  3. Cover and let rise overnight (8-10h).
  4. Move dough to a heavily floured surface or use a baking sheet for easy cleanup. Scrape from the edges of the bowl to avoid collapsing the air bubbles.
  5. Form into a one big rough oblong shape.
  6. Cut dough in half lengthwise.
  7. Transfer each half directly onto an oven rack lined with parchment paper.
  8. Pull ends to stretch into a rough baguette shape.
  9. Bake at the highest temperature your oven can go (ideally 500F or more) for 25 minutes on the lowest rack. Increase time if your oven cannot get that hot.
