    The petit pan is again, made from baguette dough, and simply shaped into more manageable sizes, giving you a 'baguette roll'.

    French wholeweat sourdough - a dense bread, with a very delicate tang to it.

  • pain au leavain

    Walnut sourdough using the Pain au levain dough, a complex taste and texture.

  • french country sourdough

    Similar to a ciabatta in shape, this open textured loaf has the most delicious crust thanks to the rye and malt in the recipe.

  • brioche

    Brioche also falls under our sweet bread categories, but is in-fact a bread that hails from France. This is a sweet in taste bread and makes the perfect accompaniment to your burgers on your sizzling BBQ.
