We love to talk about our bread as much as we love making it. Every loaf has its own unique story, from our ‘Okanagan Apple’ bread, developed from a traditional Norman recipe using tart certified organic Spartan apples from Klippers Organics, to our ‘Love at First Bite’, the first loaf that we baked where every ingredient was grown within 71 miles of Vancouver City Hall.
Our loaves claim a historic past that goes back over 100 years, when bread was mixed and kneaded with only basic ingredients such as yeast, flour, water and salt.
Our list is simple, usually only 3-4 items: flour, salt, water, Levain (or starter). Being Certified Organic, we do not use “clean label additives”. We do not call things manufacturing aids so that they don’t have to be listed on the label. Real food, baked with love.
And while every loaf has a story, how we create our bread is the magic. We use live cultures developed with individual qualities. A great loaf of bread takes many careful steps in the process to reach perfection. From the mixing of the dough, to the pre-shaping and hand molding of each loaf, to the proofing and the baking. All these steps need to work flawlessly to produce a perfect loaf. Our team of artisan bakers knows exactly how to do this.
The goodness of heritage and ancient grains, the skilled hands of an artisan baker, and the starter, coaxed out of the distinctive combination of climate and soils that we are proud to call home.
