Jessamyn's Sephardic Challah

Jessamyn Waldman grew up in Canada eating challah, the Jewish Sabbath bread. Unlike the eggy challahs of the Ashkenazi Jews of Eastern Europe, this version comes from the Sephardic Jews of the Mediterranean, who flavored their challahs with caraway and anise. Many challahs are braided, but this one is twisted into a round, turban-shaped loaf. To shape this challah, first stretch the dough into a long rope, then coil it. If the dough resists stretching, let it rest for five minutes before trying again.
