I have trained my team to put wholesomeness & taste first. They have learned to appreciate the wisdom in observing the tradition in baking.
Bread is foremost on my mind. Good bread is essential for good health; it provides enjoyment and nourishes. I like to treat it with respect and hope everybody does so as well.
We bake all through the evening into the small hours of the day so that our bread is baked as close to the delivery time as possible so it is fresh on your table in the morning.
Little details are all important in baking. Every stage in bread making is as crucial as the previous one because it leads to different result. Only by following every step you’re poised to achieve excellence. Your aim is then to replicate your success and repeat it every day.
"I judge a restaurant by the bread and by the coffee."
"Blues is to jazz what yeast is to bread. Without it, it's flat."
"Peace goes into the making of a poem as flour goes into the making of bread."
Stunningly beautiful yet simple, with deep flavours & great texture, sourdough has a low GI & many more health benefits, from essential lactic acid to a gluten reduction.
Sourdough is not just a fad, but the most traditional & wholesome way of making bread.
The result is a work of beauty, through the baking process the humble bread has gone through a transformation from simple, plain ingredients to a piece of living dough & finally into a satisfying loaf, for eye, mouth & soul.
So good, it must be shared.
