Artisan Bread and Fruit Preserves

“Good bread is the most fundamentally satisfying of all foods; and good bread with fresh butter, the greatest of feasts." ― James Beard

All of our bread recipes contain a combination of cultivated sourdough starter (levain) and yeast, and absolutely no preservatives.  We use Foricher French T65 flour, as well as Foricher French wholemeal flour and rye flour.  French flour contains none of the preservatives that British flour does, and it is also much softer than the British and Canadian wheats commonly used in the UK, as it contains less protein and gluten.  The bread is baked at extremely high temperatures, which helps them develop their signature dark, thick crust and deep flavour.
