Product Summary

Handmade and cooked in our wood fired ovenRye&currant loafThis rye flour bread contains currants from Greece.The bread is rectangular and weights around 1.3lbs or 0.650kg each bread is handcrafted. We recommend trying it with a strong British stilton, butter or jam … The rye and raisin bread is on a base of wheat flour sourdough starter, which means it is naturally fermented.Since 1932 Poilâne been passionate about bread. We are constantly looking for the best ingredients and the best production techniques. Lionel Poilâne called this search and combination of the best of old techniques with the best of new techniques, “Retro-Innovation.”Our bread is made of four ingredients: water, flour, salt, a natural rising agent (Sourdough about 80 years old) .We source our sea salt from Guérande, in France. Our flour is exclusively stone-ground. We work closely with our flour makers to use the very best varieties of wheat. And, we use a piece of dough from the previous batch of bread – the sourdough – as a starter for the next batch (natural fermentation).The type of oven used to bake bread is also important. We bake our breads in wood-fired ovens. These ovens are fed with waste wood that cannot be used for any other industry.Poilâne has a small range of breads to ensure their quality. Each bread was developed to satisfy a specific use.
